where do I do all my actual “work” when I’m not shooting


I am beyond lucky to have two awesome spaces where I work.  I live in the rural wilds around Ann Arbor and it’s a 40 minute drive into my studio.  I like to work late at night and sometimes randomly early in the morning and of course during the day when I’m not shooting so I have a home office to do all my processing, blogging, emailing, admin, ordering etcetera!  What that means is when someone asks if they can stop by the studio to drop off a thank you gift, I’m always at a loss because I’m rarely there!!!

SO today I thought I’d share some pics of my home office.  It was built as an efficiency for a family member who ended up not needing it and three months later I moved from a desk upstairs by the TV into my own space!  I walk about 15 feet from the house so I have a little commute and my view is the neighbors garden, grape vines and the occasional deer or squirrel! It’s perfect!  Kerri has her own little desk and she comes out once a week to touch base, pick up pictures and order stuff!! Here is a tiny tour of my little working space! (Complete with a corner of my VERY messy desk and the dog conked out after playing outside).  The last image is on the deck, the back door of my house is directly across from the little porch and door into my office! (off camera to the right)

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
