My studio is a small light-filled space abundant with the makings of art. Boxes, drawers, piles, and bins overflow. Paint, paper, knives, pencils, scraps from old projects, rulers, templates, scissors, punches, books and much more overfill the space. Walking around isn’t easy.
Still, there is leeway for a dialog between me and my materials. Exuberant watercolors flowing from brush to hungry paper and odd shapes cut by a sharp knife thrill me. Even scraps from collage-making fascinate me.
The interaction between materials and ideas is like a conversation between dear old friends, intermittent and deeply satisfying.
I live in a quiet hollow in East Meredith, NY, surrounded by rolling hills and farms. There, my home studio contains the essentials: light, time, and the materials to get to work.
