Artist friends encouraged me to start a blog to share my ventures in art and travel. Recently retired from my day job, I can devote my energies to creating and exploring my dreams. The photos below show my wonderful new studio. Just being able to work in the studio full time is exciting and energizing. With the help of my handy hubby and Jennifer Campbell, The Art of Organizing, this former bedroom became a studio. I highly recommend two books by Jo Packham- "Where Women Create" and "Organizing Your Craft Space".
