So I went to check out my new studio yesterday, as well as move some stuff in!
I kinda went into it sight unseen, but I had a really good feeling that it would be a great fit. I was right! I like the space I have, and I really like the people that work there too. I haven't met all of them, but I've known several for sometime now, and I'm really happy to be working along side them once again.
Rochelle Koivunen is a fantastic person and I am also a big fan :)
Jaik Faulk is also a great painter who has a space there. You can visit his Etsy shop here.
another Etsy seller, Michelle Ramin, also has a space there! I love her work too.
I think having this space is going to influence my work in so many different, amazing ways. I feel that the work that I've been making the last year and a half has really been lacking something. I like the ideas that I've had behind most of my work this last year, but honestly, I haven't been really that happy with the outcome of some of it. I think being in a space like this, with so much creative energy, and talent, is really going to push me in some wonderful directions.
Rochelle has some really terrific ideas for the commons space as well. a gallery and a dance floor, for dance parties is in the brain works :) We also want to get a small print making studio space together as well.
I'm so looking forward to being a part of this little art community, and I've already got some ideas brewing!
I'm really looking forward to sharing more of my space once I've completed moving in, and get working again.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
