It has been a busy summer of moving, setting up shop, and traveling since I chose to move to Richmond. My studio is located about 20 minutes outside of Richmond in Ashland, Va. It used to be an old generals store and now the upstairs is renovated in an apartment style which is where I have set up shop. It has beautiful natural light and original hardwood floors to spread out on. It is nice having a studio outside of the home because when I leave the apartment to go there, I can disconnect from the computer and business side of art making, and just focus on the process. It also makes me more productive when I am there because it feels like I am leaving to go to work, and when I am there, I am utilizing the time as work time. Now I don't have wifi or cable at the studio which I wasn't sure about at first because I like playing movies in the background when I work but it has turned out pretty well. I have been getting more in touch with music again and sometimes even enjoy the quiet, (until the train passes), a sound I am starting to find nostalgic. It has been difficult finding a consistent routine amongst all the travel but I have started finding of flow of office mornings at home, and studio afternoons out there. It is a wonderful space to create and begin my new full time practice. These images provide a sneak peak into my new world.
