Staring on an emotive note for the last update of 2018, this week I officially moved on from the lovely studio I've inhabited with great joy for nearly four years.
To re-cap my experience painting and printmaking in this unique space, we must time travel backwards to 2015. Freshly graduated from PNCA I found myself in search of a new place to continue my creative practice in visual art. I had not yet secured a stable job and was living in a rather small apartment that would not accommodate the extensive oil painting set up which I had become accustomed to during my time as an undergraduate.
With the help of Heather McLaughlin (who I utterly respect and have unending appreciation for both as a visual artist and live performer) the studio was transported to a space with a stimulating environment which went beyond my expectations.
Natural light, ornate walls & fixtures, massive arched windows & checkered tiles all tucked away in an industrial section of North PDX.
Next are photos from my new studio that is still a little work in progress ... 2019 brings new and unmistakable changes, which I am excited to share with you.
A heartfelt thanks and eternal gratitude to my Scorpio twin love (David Tevlin) for the cosmic love & support during this time. Shown below is a photo of a photograph from 2013, taken in the Portland Japanese Gardens.
