Cary, North Carolina
I have both a home and work studio. My home studio, featured here, is a great
place to escape and create. It is located in a wonderful attic space with a skylight
to bring in the natural light. A ceiling fan adds to comfort on warm days.
Plain white shelving holds handdyed wool according to color, while a small
shelf on an adjoining wall holds wool awaiting the dyepot. A center table is used
for designing, cutting, and color planning. Close at hand is a sewing machine
for finishing work, and a shoe cubby is used for storing wool for current projects.
My inspiration often comes from listening to music, and a CD player is always
The favorite aspect of my home studio is my book nook. This corner area is
full of magazines and books related to fiber, dyeing, and creating. A comfortable
chair and double window make this corner difficult to leave.
