My studio is my haven. It's my sacred space and my escape; a place where I can choose to create in silence or to loud music. And not only is it my studio & office, it's also a setting for art camps, workshops and social gatherings in our backyard. This small but magical space was built almost entirely with recycled and re-used materials, either salvaged from other people's projects, found at estate sales or bought off Craigslist. I love that every part of it has a little story and a past. The large window and French doors are always open to let in fresh air and inspiration from my yard. I love that I'm always surrounded by plants, chirping birds (who often fly right through my studio), my furry studio mate (Asher) and our roaming chickens, who always stop by to see what I'm up to. These things give my studio life, so I never feel alone while creating. I'm so grateful for this space.
