“I’m very process oriented. There is a deliberate set of steps I take for each painting. First is the photo session. Then there is an elaborate photo-editing process. Then I make a photo collage in Photoshop for my composition.Then, I start the paintings with a single color painted line drawing and go from there. Same routine every time.”

“I don’t know if it’s visible in the photograph, but I stuck the cover letter to my first contract with Bloomsbury in London to the wall against which my desk is set. I stuck it there with Scotch tape. It’s there to remind me that I am, in a way, a writer: I must be, in a way; there’s the physical proof. It’s got my name on it. So surely, then, I have permission to at least try to write.”

“My workspace is a mess! Part of this must be because I am scattered and confused all day long, and my external world mirrors my internal pretty closely. In my defense, I have to work on a hundred projects at once – writing new pieces and articles, editing old ones, researching projects I have to fundraise for now but won’t write for years.”

“We used to have two motorcycles parked in the studio, but a modicum of success drove them out. I don’t have any collections, I like to travel light and don’t like to dust. The studio is more of a combination garage and kitchen– with some workspace thrown in. I like the adage, “The more you know, the less you need.”

“I’m fortunate to have such a fine space to work in. The light is beautiful…..I have my books and picture files and music, I’m surrounded by art made by friends and family, and my dog comes in to visit.”

“I’m thinking about setting up an office in the shower. Get dressed, COFFEE, work, try to take a break and get outside for a bit, maybe have lunch with another designer, back to work. I try to move around. Sometimes I’ll sit on the couch, balcony or counter top with my laptop. I need that to stay fresh.”
