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 the setting for my ‘art escape’ 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. Being surrounded by plants, sunshine, blooming flowers, chirping birds (who often fly right through my studio) and my furry studio mate (Asher) gives my studio life and serves as a constant reminder of how grateful I am to create from my backyard.
