So after several years of searching for a studio space….. FINALLY it’s here! You must check out the before shots if you haven’t already. Eric and I have always kept our eyes wide open for that one space that screamed ‘us’. You know, the kind you walk into and then the clouds begin to part and the sun peeks through and the…. Ha ok we think you get the idea. Well it was pretty much exactly like that. We’ve had a mighty list and this space fit most of it. It’s much larger (around 1,000 sq ft) than we had wanted as our very first space but it was too perfect for us to pass up. And honestly we weren’t quite ready to take the plunge, but when are you really ever?. You just have to jump. We are super ambitious with any project we take on and the outcome is always rewarding. Yeah sometimes we bite off more than we can chew but in the end it all works out. HOPEFULLY?.  Well we absolutely can’t wait for you to check it out. We’re calling this stage, PHASE 1.

These are some ‘Sketch-Up’ models that Eric created so that you all can see what we envision for the finished look, minus the accessories.

The white columns that separate the office will actually be bookcases that will house our artbooks/mags and vintage cameras. They will have shelves only on the office side.  On the other we’ll be able to hang artwork.

Our ideas are ENDLESS with the large white wall.  We’re leaning towards mixed media elements hung on the wall along with our artwork. Or maybe all high gloss white frames (no glass) butted up close together filling most of the wall.
