Welcome to Espial Studio!

The contemporary use of the term espial is loosely associated with the idea of spying. But the archaic, the original meaning of espial is more nuanced. Originating in France the borrowed term was used in middle England to mean the act of observation, catching sight of something, a discovery.

To catch sight of something and discover something you didn’t know before seems similar to the creative process in the traditional visual arts.
