Studio, Here I Come (again)

For the last 10 or so years, I have made my art in an at-home studio. It seemed like a luxury, at first, to be able to be with my materials anytime of day or night and to see the works-in-progress every day. There’s something miraculous about letting multiple works settle into my consciousness and working on them a little bit at a time.

My messy, layered, looney art practice in my at-home studio!

But after a while the frustrations overtook the convenience. Too  much stuff. Too little space. And every now and then I had to put stuff away, which meant that starting over each time was like  awakening from a hypothermia-induced coma: Where am I? What was I doing?

So the time is now to move to a studio space, where I can leave my materials out, chat with other artists, ride the creative energy waves in the building, and simply make art. Until a studio of my own opens up, I’m sharing a small space with Rebecca Chase, a fabulous artist and friend and colleague. We are located at the Workhouse Arts Center, 9518 Workhouse Way, Lorton, VA 22079. Photos will be forthcoming when I am a little more settled!
