I have a great studio in the historic Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh. Every time I walk up the old circular staircase to my second floor studio I get a sense of how people lived a hundred years ago. The building was built to last. That’s how things were done in 1881. It has large , north facing double hung windows with the original glass panes. Sections of interior walls reveal the layers of wallpaper that were once used.
A few years ago I had the opportunity to double the size of my studio. The extra space has allowed me to exhibit a lot more work, especially the large paintings. The Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh where I’m located is full of creative shops. In fact, it is sometimes referred to as the design zone. Visitors to my studio often comment about my unique space. The building is a bit raw inside which makes it perfect for an artist. It’s worth a visit just to see the space.
