I've always had a studio space at home, whether it was part of a kitchen table, a spare bedroom or a renovated area in the basement. Now, for the first time I have moved my studio practice to a commercial storefront in downtown Prince George. The level of activity past my window each day is fascinating as I watch a community of shop owners and their patrons go about their activities. This move has given me more confidence and commitment to work each day. I still have my day job, but the studio calls to me more often now than it has in the past.
