I’ve visited four local artists as part of Open Studios… all very talented. I’m inspired to have an Open Studio myself next year. My work isn’t at the same level of the artists I’ve visited but that’s ok. The most exciting part of visiting other artists is that we have shared ideas and the feedback about Artistic Mortimer was positive. New ideas that I hadn’t thought of were suggested by the artists I visited which were great – ways in which to encourage and promote further creativity in the local community.
