Studio at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

Thursday, January 29th, 2009


This is the view just inside my light and airy studio space at HCCC! What a great place to work. The physical layout is  very nice and the program for Artists in Residence is wonderful. Jason Kisshell is our AIR coordinator and he sets us up with a growth/enrichment experience once a month. This month we visited a local gallery and got to ask the owner all about her experience as an owner/artist! The other artists in residence are sharing people so we have all learned alot about what the others do.

There are constant interruptions  by visitors but the up side is you get to become comfortable about speaking about your work and learn the clues to see what people want to hear about.

Sorry I have been so slow getting back to the blog but I was having trouble with all the new replacements I had like camera ect.
