About

Make Good Art

Hempstock Studios owes its existence to a speech, a novel, and a punk cabaret performance artist. Without the inspiration of Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer, my life would be very different indeed. But that is a story for another day…

The art you find here is inspired by my work as a writer. Good writing requires you to inhabit your stories -- to not just visit, but to live inside them for a while. This creativity, once conjured, often overflows its bounds and as a result I sometimes find myself inspired to channel that energy in a tangible way. Sometimes I simply need to get my hands dirty, covered in paint, clay under my nails, press something into being that previously only existed in my imagination. Hours spent sculpting, designing, and experimenting allow stories to ferment in my mind, untying knots and sticking points and revealing alternative endings. Other times my stories, although complete, refuse to leave me and linger inside my head, fuel for other creations.

Whether inspired by or inspiration for my stories, each piece of art here is unique. Made by yours truly. Imperfect by nature and design and the limitations of the human hand. Each creation carries a little piece of me with it…its own little story of how it came to be in this world. You may not know that story, but it exists none-the-less. And like all my stories, eventually I need to let them go…to live out their lives in someone else’s head, on someone else’s nightstand, to be worn by someone else who will make them a part of their own story. Perhaps that someone is you.
