I don’t know why I haven’t told you about this before now. At first, I was anxious not to jinx it, or, as they say here, put the mozz on. I have a new studio, in this building. I found it the day I told the real estate agent that I wasn’t going to go ahead with the other space. It’s a shared space, but my area (a former gallery) is almost completely separate. The natural light isn’t great, and the bathroom is down the hall, but when I can quell my anxieties about suppliers and moving equipment and selling work, I’m very excited about it and hopeful that this is the place I was supposed to wait for.
I’ve had the keys for almost a month, but my mover has been on holiday. When we met at the building for him to assess access, he assured me that despite initial “buggerisation” all would proceed smoothly. I hope he’s right.
