Having a dedicated space to work in is every creative person's desire. When visiting artists studios I love seeing the work they create but almost as much I love seeing the space they create in. Having a studio space of my own as been a dream long in the making. So here is a little before and after!
When I moved to Marfa in 2009 I decided creativity was going to be a bigger part of my life focus and work. After living in Marfa for about a year I bought a house with a detached building and garage. It was rough, dirty and packed with items left behind from the previous owners. I used the building as storage but always imagined it would become an apartment or studio. After a few years I was able to finish the rough space and make it into a lovely jewelry studio complete with new windows, insulation and a rustic chandelier I found at a garage sale. Before

Be sure to view "Viva Boquillas" an exhibit of new watercolor paintings by local artist Wendy Lynn Wright. I was lucky enough to visit Boquillas for the first time recently and it now has a special place in my heart. Boquillas is a tiny village in Mexico on the southern bank of the Rio Grande. To see the simple and creative life those people live is humbling and inspiring.
Viva Boquillas indeed!

Marfa International School is holding a fundraising event this weekend featuring horses decorated or transformed by artists in Marfa. The theme is Year of the Horse. This is my horse under construction in my studio. I am so pleased to participate in this event and can't wait to see all the horses.
I have recently started an apprenticeship with a local jewelry maker. This is an entirely new approach to making jewelry.
I have really been enjoying the learning process and what I can do with metal and fire! This ring is made with a fossilised dinosaur bone and silver.
