I've been itching to redesign my studio to include lighter brighter colors, less clutter, and a separate work space for my computer, printer, and scanner. There's much more to show you on the other sides of the room, but this little space is where I paint each custom portrait so I thought I'd share it first. 

Over the years I've painted in so many different spaces and studios, and I've realized the importance and influence of the objects and colors I surround myself with every day. I need lots of white space to think and rest, bright colors to cheer me up, and a clean, clutter-free space to work without distraction. Plus, of course, I need lots and lots of natural light!

The artwork on the wall includes my Custom Mother/Daughter Portrait, my Modern Abstract Florals, and a custom portrait of Sarge by my dear friend Corrie. I get so much enjoyment out of this artwork! It seriously warms my heart to see those portraits every morning and is a reminder to me of why I do what I do.
