Just over a month ago, Tony and I started renting an art studio for us to pursue our creative dreams.
For me, it's about creating a space to run sessions and workshops for my business Aurora Art Therapy and to grow my own personal art practice. Tony is using the space to create amazing prints using alternative photographic print processes - cyanotype and platinum palladium printing.
Originally we saw a bigger studio (with a window that let in lots of natural light) but it wasn't available at the time, so we took a temporary space in the same building and set up there in the meantime.
We have loved creating a space - filling it with lots of cool art materials and decorating it to feel warm, bright, creative and inviting. And despite the fact it wasn't the exact space we wanted, we both really loved it. And then, just last week, the other studio became available and we finally got to move into the newer bigger space. I haven't got a picture of the new studio yet (the one above is of the first studio), but it's totally awesome and we love it too!
Yesterday, I was very excited to finally launch my business website! It's all about my art therapy practice and I think it reflects well the colour and passion I have for art therapy. Click on the link and have a read... If you live in Melbourne (or you are planning a visit) you might like to come along for a private session, or maybe do a group workshop!
Welcome to Aurora Art Therapy.
