Rachel Sharp - shedworker

We don't feature enough of the creative output of shedworkers on Shedworking, something we're working on addressing over coming months. To set the ball rolling there is a nice feature on artist Rachel Sharp at the lovely Juliet Doyle's site Musings from a muddy island (indeed, Britain's most easterly inhabited island). Rachel talks about her work, her interest in colour and most importantly, her garden office studio:
"My husband and father-in-law renovated an old coal shed and turned it into a studio. It has special lighting and an exhaust fan for painting. It’s a pretty luxurious coal shed!"
Her latest show - Hilltops and Teapots - is now running at Peebles Art Centre to October 17 and you can see lots more of her paintings at her own site here.
