SO. My husband is super construction savvy: building roads, buildings, houses, etc.. I grew up around the business. Between the two of us, projects are forever popping up. After graduating college, I no longer had access to the fully stocked printmaking lab. I was bound to my spare bedroom and whatever I could fit in the 10x10 foot space. I obviously can’t have a lithography press, a dark room, or silk screen equipment. I don’t think my pier house could hold a bagillion pound Vandercook Press or the lead type that would go with such a press.
In the mean time, I’ve been making the best and highest use out of this 100 square feet. I was lucky enough to stumble across a C&P 6.5x10” Pilot Press. The tabletop press was perfect for the space I have. I’ve been functioning pretty well (and tight) from my spare bedroom studio, and rightfully so. Everyone should start from the bottom. I have big dreams that don’t even know they exist yet. Poor dreams, they don’t even know what’s coming!
I was also lucky enough to marry my high school sweet heart, build our dream home, and start a family. We’ve done so much in our short little married life, and projects, well, they’ll just continue to pop up.
my current project: STUDIO/OUTDOOR LIVING
If Pinterest were invented when we built our home, we’d still be picking out light fixtures, kitchen cabinets, and all the awesomeness Pinterest has inspired! Our current project is an outdoor living area with an attached studio. My garage is dettached from our house, so this was the perfect structure to build against.
Plans have been completed, forms have been set, concrete has been poured. framing next week. STAY TUNED…
