How I will use my space

My practice has a fairly strong studio focus and the space will be used to further develop my practice and create new works that I intend on exhibiting. In
addition to the generation of work, I will be using the space to focus on all aspects of a professional contemporary art practice such as maintaining my
website, documenting work, writing applications for various exhibition, residency and funding and other miscellaneous activities.

The kind of equipment I will be using will include, but not be limited to:

• Traditional drawing media such as water colour
• Paper
• A computer
• Photographic Equipment
• Lights
• Film Scanner
• Sound equipment (which will be used with headphones)
• Microphones
• Mic stands etc,
