My new Video

I have been working with a long time friend and film maker extraordinaire, Dave Tarvit, over the last few weeks getting an artists video put together.

There is a bit of chat, a bit of me working in the studio and a bit with my model on the photographic studio.

All in all, it was rather cathartic experience. Being made to think and talk about what inspires me and drives me in my artwork has made my mind much clearer about who I am as an artist and where I am heading in my future projects.

I thoroughly recommend any other artist to do a video for this reason alone.

I might do another film showing the process of painting a bit more.

My Solo Show Private view tonight!

Well it all happens tonight. I have been bad at blogging this past few weeks as I have been flat out painting to get things finished for my Solo Show. This will be the first solo I have done in about 6 years. Having a family has taken priority over my studio time but as the kids are now getting older, Cammy is a very independent 6 year old and Grace is 3 this Sunday!!  - iam have been able to produce more work.

So -  I have 32 works up on show at Alpha Art in Edinburgh. I am very happy with the paintings but am still a bit stressed about how it will go tonight.

Alpha Art - Stephanie Rew Solo Exhibition

I have been wrapping pass-the-parcel presents for Gracie's birthday party to keep my nerves at bay but the poor kids will be playing for hours as I think I have put too many layers on!! I'm a bit distracted......

Will post again to let you know how it goes.
