Bill Bate, b. 1962 in Liverpool
“My studio is in a converted warehouse in Wimbledon where there is a community of over a hundred artists. There is no set pattern to my day although I prefer to arrive around 9am. I usually listen to music or maybe the radio, and it is always good to chat with the other artists as they pass my studio.
I paint for 3 or 4 hours and then take a break, some lunch, a session at the gym or a walk on Wimbledon Common with my dog Ted.
Afterwards I return to the studio and work on until the evening. The day is often rounded off with a pint in the pub with friends.”
