For me this has been an Inspired Summer—inspired by SaraLou’s five figures, by the company of five other artists, and by having the luxury of extended time in this marvellous studio space at The Armoury.  We are resoundingly grateful to Terry and Steven for providing us this opportunity.

The process was fascinating: from early work focused on clear representations of the figures to later work that explored the definition of “Muse” and the idea of Inspiration itself. We had good, productive days, and days when the Muses seemed to be asleep on the job.  We shared and traded ideas, laughed and whined and stomped our feet and, in the end, we inspired each other.
