Since June 2016, I've created two home studio spaces, one in my second bedroom. Although I occasionally still mourn the larger more commercial space I had before, I do love the convenience of my 10-second commute to the studio. And in the warmer months, I use my terrace treehouse as an art space, both for work in soft pastels (which creates a dust nightmare in the house) and for larger works.
I love to have people come and play with me in the studio space. I can talk and paint at the same time.
