My loft painting studio is a great industrial space of over 2,000 square feet, filled with natural light, and 360 degree views along the Iron to Arts Corridor.
On the top floor over Flood City Cafe, ArtLoft7 has a refreshing vantage point to watch the morning light roll across the mountain side, and the afternoon glow bounce across orange mill rooftops and church steeples. Since this loft space is so ideal, I share it with artists and writers, in a fine arts mentorship program, and in residencies In October while the fall foliage is ablaze.
I renovated a turn of the century mansion, into ArtHouse6, with galleries, tasting rooms, studios, and lodging, so that more atists and patrons can visit the region. The Crosswind Terrace Studios, on the second floor, are where the fine arts mentorships happen. The Creator's Suite on the third floor is another inspiring retreat that I enjoy painting in.
My painting career is shaped through collaborations and explorations in residency, and commissioned to work on site, from congressional offfices on Capitol HIll in DC, to NYC destinations, including my former studio overlooking Central Park (pictured here), as well as plein air sites and studios in Italy, France, and throughout United States.
I enjoy hosting visiting artists and collectors, sharing the regional rich sights and thriving arts.
