Schofield’s career as an artist shows that it is never too late to blossom into your chosen vocation. After studying at the Royal College Of Art under the tutelage of Peter Doig, he worked primarily as an art director for fashion brands such as Stella McCartney, wrongly believing that life as an artist had passed him by. Six years ago, he decided to start painting seriously again. ‘When I was working as an art director, even though it wasn’t exactly the discipline that I wanted to do, I was still working and making images,’ he says describing the transition. ‘I think it was Andy Warhol who said just never stop working. I think that’s true, just keep working and one day you will get the time when you can do your personal projects.’ Schofield, who endured a tough lockdown after contracting Covid-19, thinks that the arrival of spring will be even more poignant this year. ‘I think Covid has forced us to really evaluate what matters in life,’ he says. ‘I think people are looking for the opposite of fast fashion and fast food. They want to be really invested in something, and hopefully, that will stay with us when we come out of it’.
