I’m finished in the Florence Academy now. The experience of drawing and sculpting every day and of being in Italy, surrounded by millennia of art and history for a year, and a half was incredibly rewarding. I’m looking forward now to creating some work that combines what I learned there with my other interests. I’m going to set up a studio in Dublin for a year and see what I come up with. In the interim there will be a hiatus of postings so here’s a big ‘un: My final school charcoal drawing, and sketches from my last week in Italy, which I spent in Rome wearing out shoe leather in the Vatican, the Palazzo Borghese and the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna.
