I am fascinated by what drives creativity in people – artists, designers, makers, bakers, musicians, writers – anyone really. So I recently volunteered to write some ‘Inside The Studio’ features for the Creative Dundee blog. These will feature photography and short interviews within the working spaces of creative people in Dundee. I hope that in addition to these interviews being featured as articles on the Creative Dundee blog, they will also contribute to a further personal research project exploring creative working spaces.
I recently completed my first interview with fine artist Lara Scouller. Lara has recently won The Pastel Society UK Young Artist Award, just one of a number of awards collected since graduating in Fine Art from the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 2006. I loved getting to spend a little bit of time in Lara’s calm, sunny studio space whilst we asked a few questions about her work, her studio and her life in Dundee.
