This space has been home to me for 20 years. It has evolved in that time from an easel to how it looks today. It is split into three sections so I can work on fabric and fibers projects while also paintings and drawings. I am experimenting with collage currently so I have several pieces working at once. All my inspiration comes from my daily drawings that are in marker. Situated in my basement, sharing my space with the furnace, water heater, and sump pump, it is a cozy space with lots of storage. I enjoy the view of my yard and the occasional wildlife that looks into my window at me.
One thing not in this space is a clock. It’s inevitable that time is always a factor, so I do not need that reminder while I work. One thing not noticeable may be my music, which is always on and at times soothes my process. Funny how a song outside the studio is fine but I will skip over anything that distracts from the work.

In the photograph presented here, the inner wall of my studio is revealed. There are countless compartments, shelves, drawers, and hangers, which constain my work’s tools and materials. Order, arrangement, severe pedantry, and the fantasy regimentation allow for the masculine instinctive and creative life of a male sculptor artist.

This small but efficient table-top studio is where I create many 2D illustrations and 3D fiber work. Though I have a basement studio area for creating my large format work, this smaller space is more conducive to my being a full-time student and new mother.
I have been making costume pieces for various exhibitions and film work, which are created with the 1940s sewing machine see here, as well as being hand-embellished with various notions. I avidly utilize mood boards, both physically and digitally, as the one seen in this photo features a variety of fashion inspired images, as well as the vibrant color palette and glittery textures I have been working with. My favorite containers for my art supplies are my beloved tool boxes. My cutting board doubles as an extra palette, when flipped, and holds years of marks from my previous paintings. I like to constantly rotate the kinds of supplies and images that I surround myself with, but thematically, they continually hold the same qualities; sparkly, colorful, and multifaceted!

My studio is in a section of an old converted felt factory that was once the loading docks.
The building sits beside two main freight rail lines that bisect this city. I’m continually entertained by the view and rumble of passing trains and the endless flow of graffiti they are tagged with. My west facing windows illuminate the space with intense daylight all day long and provide a great view of the sky and sunsets. I prize working through the brilliant afternoon sunlight.

What I love about this studio are the 15 foot tall ceilings that have allowed me to build up, and the 10 foot windows, with a sliver view of the East River. Breezes waft in and the curtains billow in summer, and in winter the low lying sun is blinding (hence the back lit photo) but warms the space nicely. I work with collected materials. The paintings are acrylic paint and fruit stickers, the hanging sculptures to the right are candy wrappers tied with thread, and the tower is made of stacked boxes. It’s with sadness that I submit this photograph, because of April 15 this year about 50 artists were evicted. It was the very last artist-occupied building on the Williamsburg Waterfront. This has been a fantastic studio.
The settlement comes after Tate prevented an artist who exposed sexual harassment by one of its largest donors from co-curating an exhibition.
Let’s be honest: On a best bathrooms list, no one wants to be number two.
