In The Studio

My studio is a sanctuary for creative solitude where ideas come to life through materials. I feel a sense of calm and a sense of flow in the work. My ideas written in a notebook, some reference images or books are spread out on the work tables to influence my direction. There are lists of things I want to paint in the future, things to do on the current body of work or studio supplies I need to purchase. Mostly I work on an easel using stretched canvas or Yupo attached to a large foam core board. The larger scale surfaces are painted hanging directly on the wall. Chairs are available for sitting to observe work in progress. On any given workday the studio may look chaotic; however, this is an integration experience for me to put it visually all together. My studio is a place of freedom to express what is in my mind transforming it into a physical representation on canvas with oil paint.

Vermont Studio Center Art Residency

I’m excited to announce that I have been selected for a three-week Artist Residency at Vermont Studio Center located in Johnson, Vermont. The residency will be March 12, 2023 until April 1, 2023. I look forward to this residency – a place to truly get away to clear one’s head, spark new creative thoughts and ideas. Being in this creative environment with twenty other writers and visual artists helps the creative juices flow. Under these circumstances, its a trigger to try something new such as experiment with new painting mediums or jump into a larger project that requires dedicated time and concentration. After decompressing into this unique environment, there is space to discover where and how I want to grow my art practice or next body of work. I’m grateful to live, work and play in snowy Vermont and explore the scenery. I’m eager to kick off this journey and flow with the adventure. Follow my journey through social media; let’s stay in touch.
