My studio is my space, just mine. I like that I can play soothing music or nature sounds while working and just get lost. I have been making art all my life – my aunt and father inspired me when I was young, I went to art school, met and married an artist. Our three kids, and now grandkids, are all artistic, and my son is an illustrator. It is a big part of our lives and normal in our family, but respected. Making art has always been a type of therapy for me, like meditation. The rest of the world and the business of my day melts away. Raising three kids with a demanding career did not leave much time to practice my craft and I now make art whenever I can!
