In June 2016, the historic Troy Laundry Building, an artists’ co-op of over 45 years, was sold and I moved my studio home into my second bedroom, which had been serving as my home While I miss the creative synergy of my former studio mates, there's something to be said about the convenience of my now 10-second commute to the studio. I love to have people come and play in the studio space. I can talk and paint at the same time.
