Tom Stogdon’s career path took a complete change in 1998. Coming from generations of greengrocers in London, he swapped the fruit trade for the life of an artist creating sculpture from predominantly stone and metal. His work is a combination of found and worked material using what he describes as an ‘abrasive washing machine’ to create different shapes and textures to stone. I joined Tom in his studio in Oxfordshire to document his working process and some of the finished pieces.

Trained in the classical ‘Atelier’ tradition at ‘Lavender Hill Studios’, Rosalie paints and draws exclusively from life. Her work has been published, commissioned for film, and hangs in public and private collections in the UK and abroad.
She was selected for the 2014 Royal Institute of Oil Painters exhibition at the Mall Galleries, and recently painted poet Patience Agbabi, in a collaborative project between Poet in the City and Lavender Hill Studios.
