Mine is a stark room with good natural light. I fill the open wall space with references and inspiration for the work. I scatter a plethora of paint tubes and brushes to select from. Then I create the visual. Stepping, forward for a close look, stepping back for more perspective. Walking in circles, pacing at different speeds to contemplate. It becomes a dance. I feel drawn to retreat and go internal, away from the external world. It is a place for transformation.
