I live in St. Paul, Minnesota in a house over 100 years old with my husband Coz and our cats Mickey and Bailey.
This is my studio at home. We converted the second story master bedroom into my studio. There are two roof windows that give me a lot of additional light as well as fresh air. It's where I spend a lot of my time designing and painting. The classes are taught on the first level of our home by converting the dining room and living room into a spacious classroom.
View from my studio in May 2009.
View from my studio window January 6, 2014. It looks pretty, but it was 30 below zero and wind chill close to 60 below.
We updated our siding, roof, and added a new front porch to our house. Isn't it charming? Now to work on the landscaping and gardens!
Our cats really do spend a lot of time looking out windows!
They are brothers.
Bailey about 2 years old
