In the Studio with Candice Greathouse

What does a day in your art practice look like?My studio practice truly involves a lot of reading and thinking before I make any moves. I like to say ideas are percolating in my mind, sometimes for months (or longer!), until things are really resolved conceptually.

What would life be like without art?I try not to imagine what life would be like without art because I know I won’t like it…Why you asked?

In the Studio with Lauretta Coumarbatch

What does a day in your art practice look like? My artistic process has an organic feel and it’s very unscripted.
