Doing pretty good, COVID free and the suns out!
Whats lockdown like for you?
Busy! I started 3d printing Visors for the NHS and it suddenly took over everything with the demand! £10,000 in funding raised and over 2000 visors made and distributed to NHS, District Nurses, Care Homes, Police etc etc. Also funded local teams of seamstresses making scrubs and gowns. Managed to find time to do my hut and a few commission pieces amongst all that too though!
Are you able to work/ where is your studio normally? What's your current set up.
I’ve mainly worked from home but been able to pop into the studio from time to time which is local to me and has been a good break. Didn’t go to Durham though!
What projects are you working on now?
I featured in the Krause Gallery of New York’s online show and sold quite a few pieces through that, which also gave 20% to Meals on Wheels for the elderly in NYC. I have a painting commission I am doing and have also been working on some new pieces that I hope to be sharing in the coming weeks.
Is lock down / coronavirus having an influence on your work?
I found it difficult to concentrate initially with the early days of the virus reaching the UK and lockdown, but the visors helped me snap out of that and now am glad to be able to spend some time looking into my new pieces.
Which artists/ instagram accounts are you most addicted to now?
instagram.com/paxtonglew Paxton Glew obviously! Ha! Not overly been following anyone particularly but scrolling through to find anything interesting that catches my eye… that isn’t a half naked woman standing by their easel pounding flesh for likes… "move out the way and lets see your art for what it really is! Haha!
What are you listening to/ reading/ watching when you can?
