Since moving to Los Angeles four years ago, I have been without a real studio workspace. That has been tough and I have been making do with a converted garage the past two years, but it's been very cramped and limiting. Now, after months of searching and negotiating, I am finally closing a deal on a new studio space (just in the nick of time, too, with 4 upcoming group shows in the next 3 months). It will become the nerve center for all my creative endeavors, functioning as both my commercial design office and my fine art studio. There's still a lot of preparation work to do before I am completely operational, but expect to see a public, open studio event later this fall.
