Studio Tour
Nestled in a country hollow, on a beautiful mountain over 2400 feet high in the Catskills, surrounded by an assortment of majestic trees & a babbling brook, sits my studio. It would be my pleasure to have you join me for a little tour.
The door to my studio (in the picture to the left) sits directly above an original one room schoolhouse circa 1797!

Come on in for a visit!
I surround myself with a lot of items that I use for reference & also which inspire me.

The window to the left of my drafting table, faces North, which is excellent for natural lighting.
The top pic (to the left) is the view from that window, facing our pond. There have been several dozen assorted fruit trees and roses planted there, since this picture has been taken. A huge vegetable garden (not shown in the picture) sits to the right. The pic directly below that is the view from my front window. It’s not at all uncommon to see Deer, Raccoons, Eagles, wild Turkeys or sometimes even Coyotes, Wolves or Bear here. After a nice long day in the studio, I like to take the boat out on the pond as a great way to relax.

It’s a miracle that I get anything done, as the beautiful changing seasons & wildlife keep me in constant awe.
This is where a lot of my ideas for designs that will be used on products and stationery are first sketched out. Depending on what medium I choose to work in, will dictate whether I create the piece on my drafting table or at one of my easels. Portraits are usually done at the easel and it's not at all uncommon to see several paintings in various stages of progress at the same time.

I truly love this place & am happy to share my photos with you. I hope you enjoyed visiting!
