My studio space is in an old Victorian townhouse. The floor to ceiling windows let in lots of morning light. I have track lighting around areas that don’t get much direct sunlight. I like to have a clean slate when I begin a new series. This view of the studio has finished abstract paintings and a work in progress on the floor. Since my process is spontaneous and active, paint goes everywhere. I typically use acrylic paints on canvas with cardboard barriers to protect the floor and rug underneath. At the end of a painting day, I arrange all my materials and supplies so I can have a fresh start when I return. All of my studio furniture has wheels and can be reconfigured for different projects. I’ve just added a couple more rolling carts with tops so I can work on smaller pieces. My paints are stored in plastic containers on the metal shelves and my other resource materials are stacked into old cigar boxes that I use as bins and store them under the table. I love coming in and seeing all the vibrant colors waiting for discovery. It’s a kickstart to begin the creative process once again.

As you can see from the image of my studio, I have large abstract artworks on the walls and some other artworks ready for delivery to clients. I have ample space to move around, industrial lighting, and a work station (in the corner of the image) that I built to organize my paints and art materials.
