The Renovation Diaries

After years of painting trips, holidays and a rollercoaster of a property search, we’ve finally found our dream studio in Cornwall.
Leaking roofs, copious amounts of whitewashing, numerous skips, and an epic space that was once the working studio of Royal Academy artist Sandra Blow in glorious St Ives.

I’ve been taking lots of photographs and Vanessa has been writing a monthly journal.

The renovation diary follows our progress in bringing this eclectic empty property back to life, our highs and lows of creating a studio, home and new life fuelled by large amounts of ice cream.
