Stacie McCormick

Artist and non-profit director

Multi-disciplinary artist Stacie McCormick is Los Angeles-born and London-based. She earned her masters in fine art from City & Guilds of London Art School and ran the non-profit art initiative Home Where the Art Is in Charleston, South Carolina from 2009 to 2014, before starting her current role as director of the Workshop Foundation, an artist-supporting organisation in London. Stacie’s own works revolve around the unexpected in photography, poetry, video and sound; she creates primarily on paper and canvas, and has shown her art at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the 57th Venice Biennale.

Ah, the smell of turpentine in the morning: explore a real artists’ studio in west London.

Where you'll go
You’ll meet artist Stacie McCormick at her dynamic, multi-faceted art initiative in Holland Park, where she’ll give you a private tour of the studio space at Unit 1, which hosts twice-yearly residency programmes for 10 international artists at a time. It’s all part of the Workshop Foundation, which supports emerging artists. Stacie will also introduce you to the current solo resident and guide you through the Radical Residency® exhibition.
What you'll learn
You’ll learn how the Workshop Foundation supports emerging artists and have in-depth discussions with the artists about their current projects. After touring the studio space, you’ll head upstairs for a coffee (and a snack) and chat with Stacie about her own artistic process, her preferred mediums and what inspires her. She’ll walk you through the how-tos of growing an art collection (and you’ll get an exclusive 25 per cent off her own works, if you’d like to start your own stash on the spot).
