I’ve been doing art since an early age and this is the first time that I have a big, real studio — a space where I can leave things out to dry without having to clean up. The left-hand side of the photo is a close-up of my working bench, with a few pieces that will be on show soon. The right-hand photo uses a landscape view from outside my studio. The studio is located at Casa del Arte in the Hudson Valley. It’s a unique building, reminiscent of a round-arched Mediterranean castle. It’s an amazing environment, and an ideal space for creating.

I find a lot of visual stimulation in contemporary periodicals, looking for patterns, colors and objects and interiors which act as shard-like visual aids, spring-boarding a work or nestling into an existing one.

My studio is the space where I spend most of my time. I am involved in painting, a process which is both comforting and challenging. I am surrounded by my work, past and present, wrapped up, rolled up, together with what I am currently working on. Here I can be myself.

In the darkroom, I do wet chemical processing of medium-format film and gelatin silver prints up to 16’x20’. Film is developed in cylindrical tanks, and prints are made in a series of chemical bath trays. Sometimes I will later collage other papers, or 3-D objects, onto the faces of the prints. Other times I will make many copies of the same print, cut them up and then collage them into kaleidoscopic abstract patterns.
