Environment plays a huge part in inspiring a works creation. From the materials you surround yourself with to the people that exist within that space. Environment also creates a vital dialog when artworks are being publically viewed. This subject has always been one of personal intrigue, one that has actively lead me to creating Art Studios and Retreat Spaces, an Art Gallery, Art Collectives and many exhibitions and creatively born events .

Found Object Studio

Built March 2015 The Found Object Studio was built out of only recycled wood and metal. Designed as a place to paint and write, the studio is situated within a 150 year old olive tree orchard at The Beekeepers, Portugal. It was designed to be connected firmly with its surroundings. Gaps allow the wind to flow through the space whilst creatures great and small often wander on in. Designed & built by Tom Leamon
