Studio Spots

I have been working on cleaning out a storage room next to my studio to create a studio annex, giving me some much needed additional space.  I am not all moved in yet or even done cleaning and getting rid of, but the room is already coming in very handy…

A 6 foot long table for groups or large projects. My paints are in the little cart so they can easily move back and forth between the rooms.

In the closet is a place to store all my canvases and wood panels in one place!  I am also excited about the bookcase where I have room to gather all my books and magazines where I can find them.


On top of the bookcase is a metal basket full of all kinds of beautiful tissue papers and napkins.

And here is one of my newly acquired sugar molds doing duty holding gel pens.  Behind it is a big jar of washi tape, and next to it is my jar of Tombow markers and another of brushes.

Feels good to have a little more room to spread my wings!

  1. Just wanted to let you know that I have been receiving your posts for a few weeks now and I really enjoy your work. I noticed that you live near Hutchinson, Kansas. I  live north of Manhattan, so we are fairly close. I am sixty years old and I am an amateur artist who works in my studio in my basement. It was interesting to see how you organize your studio. I also have a question. I love the Citra Solv pages. I tried it and it didn’t work for me. I even let the pages sit overnight and it still didn’t work. Any suggestions? Keep up the good work.

    • Hello to a fellow artist, and Kansan! Are you using magazines that date 2000 and newer? They seem to works the best. Also, it takes quite a lot of the concentrate (must be the concentrate!) so put it on generously! Time varies quite abit, but you should see it start to work within 30 min or so. Hope that helps!

    • Also, Carol, if you are still having trouble, I will be teaching a Citra Solv workshop April 16 at Tessera Fine Art Gallery in Wichita. Call the gallery at (316) 262-2435 if you want to sign up.
