Studio Update


new year


a new work space!

At last


is complete!!

1 year ago,

we were

insulated, waiting for drywall and

Still Seeking Light.


Time capsule.



Well, we found it.

Windows on every wall, eight skylights and two sets of French doors with connecting elliptical above each one.

At most times of the day, the room is flooded with a generous amount of natural light.

And I love it!!!

Builders on the project couldn’t understand the need for so many windows and I was questioned from every tradesman.

I stuck to my (never enough light) priority and it turned out to be the right decision, no question.

So, beginning 2018

Joy Studio

is completely finished, furnished and finally, ready for (hiding out) creative action.

It was a long, extremely tough journey but worth the effort.

Every time I enter the new studio space, I feel like a kid.


and still hard to believe.

Thanks for visiting.
