Introducing: Studio Snapshot

I am happy to introduce Studio Snapshot, a little blog that will feature people working in their studios. I am fascinated by where people work, how they manage a studio, and how they create a space to make things.

new work in process

A little glimps of my new piece. Side note, I feed crocodiles at a crocodile "Farm" as a collage job. The two aren't related. But I look at crocs with a strange fondness.

speaking in front of cameras

I spoke to the Columbus City Council today. I was so very nervous, when I saw the take from the television broadcast I didn't sound as bad as I thought, I spoke on behalf of GCAC and in support of arts funding. This is an image of the room.


I have a new goal to add to the list! get invited to create produces for artware editions, in this picture, Phoebe Washburn's wall paper design, "Wood wall" WOW

objects in my studio

The old sketchbook stack. these have traveled with me for years, I would say they are from about 1986-1995. I seem to sketch my ideas onto scraps and what ever is in front of me these days.
