Why "treetop" studio. Well, years ago my husband added an addition that spanned our garage and back porch to specifically create a studio space. He let me select any windows I wanted so naturally I went for as many as possible to let in plenty of light (even on gray days). Since we live in the woods, I look out to the treetops that surround our place; hence Treetop Studio.
The 20" X 30" space is large enough to accommodate my large press, good sized drawing table and all of my supplies. There's even enough space to dedicate part of the room for exercise and a sitting area. It's a fabulous space in which to work and now that I have the time my goal is to put it to use every day. Needless to say, I consider myself extremely fortunate.
"In the studio all distinctions disappear. One has neither name or family; one is no longer the daughter of ones mother, one is oneself and individual, and one has before one art, and nothing else. One feels so happy, so free, so proud! Marie Bashkirtsef (1860-1884)
