I am still in the Marshall Building which is in Milwaukee's Third Ward, but now I am on the 6th floor. I'm now part of Material Studios and Gallery, which is one huge space divided up into smaller studios where each artist can show or work as they please. The decision to move and be part of this group was a little scary because I tend to like working alone, however, it's actually been really nice to be able to peak out of my room and chat with people when I need a break.
There is always someone working on their own thing so the energy is always alive. It's a great environment to come to everyday. It kind of reminds me of my days at MIAD where all of us art students were hard at work in our cubicles, but we could visit and connect whenever we needed.
So I have the best of both worlds right now. I can work alone, which I need, but there is movement and noise outside of my studio, which I always like.
I've been busy setting up my space and making it just right. I'll show you as soon as I'm done. I cannot wait to get back to painting!!!
