This week on the Journal we visit the Stoke Newington studio of landscape painter Amelia Humber.
"I am a landscape artist living in London and spend my days painting with oils and turps. I like to travel to a range of remote places in the UK, especially Scotland and Cornwall, to gather my material and then return to my studio in Stoke Newington to complete the works. My paintings are then exhibited at various galleries."
How long have you had a studio in Stokey?
"I have had a studio at the Chocolate Factory for two years. It's a hidden oasis which I luckily found by chance."
What are your favourite places to eat and drink in the area?
Whats been the most memorable moment in your painting career?
Last year I was taken on by a reputable gallery (The Lemon Street Gallery) in Cornwall that I had admired since my art college days. Earlier this year I completed my largest solo show to date there, entitled 'Viewpoint'.
