    The Studio Larroque, SW France

    The Studio Larroque, SW France

    I bought the former 'Mairie' (Town Hall) and Post Office of a tiny hamlet in SW France around 1996 and have been slowly rennovating it - the Post office section is now my studio and gallery, from where I work, but also host shows of other artists, invite artists to share a residency, and direct an annual Arts Festival.

    The Studio, Settignano, 1978

    The Studio, Settignano, 1978

    My studio in Settignano, in the hills just north of Florence, had a balcony running round it from where you could hear the distant bells of Florence, and look over the lemon groves to the city below. Michelangelo's brother had lived in the adjacent house, as well as Dante Gabriel Rossetti a few houses further away. I stayed there for about a year whilst studying at the Accademia di Belle Arti under pupils of Guttuso and Kokoschka.

    In Annigoni's Studio, Florence.

    In Pietro Annigoni's studio in Florence c 1980. I visited Annigoni in Florence whilst studying there. He is mostly known in the UK for his portrait of HM the Queen, but also produced frescos for the Chiesa di San Marco, Florence, not far from the Accademia di Belle Arti. His drawings and landscape etchings are particularly fine, and he had a real mastery of the traditional skills of the artist. He was also very friendly and a bon viveur.
