Hello everyone! I’m nearing completion of my new art shop/studio in Sonoma County, I’ve been working on it all week. Soon anyone can come visit on Fridays or Saturdays when I’m holding open hours to the public. I sell art prints and ceramics and also destination and botanical themed gifts.
My new shop is also a workspace and adjacent to my ceramics studio where I’m improving my skills so I’ll be spending several hours a day in this new space. I have the loveliest makers as neighbors in the collective: a textile artist, florist, custom woodworker, and other fine artists. Natural light spills into the space throughout the day and I’m surrounded by the hum of other artists in their creative flow. It’s lovely. I’ll share pictures and video soon!
I’m headed back to Florida at the end of the month and again in July. We need to finish up a few projects on the house that are still incomplete. We’re not making the permanent move to Florida for another two years (for a variety of reasons) but I’m happy I get to return to enjoy it before it gets rented out again and walk along the white sandy beaches nearby that I miss so much.
