1890 Bryant Street Studio
When I moved into my studio in 2010 I knew it was a special place, after all, Catherine Mackey was new to the building and Trish and I had been stalking her at fall Open Studios for years. The building also housed Katja Liebenath, Liz Hickok and Cynthia Tom. I moved into 1890—shorthand for the former Best Foods building and now home to more than 100 fine artists and crafts people and began to reap the benefits of being among artists who are wildly talented, brilliantly capable, and super creative. Luckily, I am among them in location, and get to soak up all the other stuff.
I've been free to experiment, encouraged to grow, celebrated when sales are good, and comforted through hard times by my fellow artists there. 1890 has come to be my home away from home. Even during times when my creativity or schedule are art-anemic, I am buoyed by the knowledge that I have this glorious place, among some of my favorite artists, to go and create.
