Welcome to Silver Magpie Studio. In the last 15 years, my studio has made its home in a lot of different spaces. Some had a ton of space, some had a ton of mice, some had a lot of noise, most were just plain cold, some were in cities, one was way out in the country, three times I found myself in converted old factories, and there was even one very creepy attic. As I approach the second anniversary of what I hope to be my final studio move, I figure it is the best place to begin this blog - just a little glimpse into the space where I begin each piece. A peaceful space that is open and warm with light that floods in from a wall of windows which overlook the natural environment that inspires many of my pieces. Check back as I share what I'm working on each week in the studio and watch pieces evolve from their very beginnings.
