My studio is small and round. It was once used as a piano practice room. The lack of ventilation has caused a change in how I make art, and the materials I use. Printmaking and etching involve toxic inks. The studio has two doors, one leading to the outside. By cracking both doors, the ventilation problem lessens. The floor press dominates the middle of the room. The drying rack and large water tray disappeared when I began using Arches 88 for printmaking. Depending on weather, I often work on large canvas paintings outside. I have an old phonograph purchased in 1970 during the Vietnam war, and a CD player given to me by one of my children. Leonard Cohen and 1970s music are a part of making art in the studio.
