Since I've taken on the Dante's Inferno project a year ago I've been on a journey that has forced so many unexpected changes in my life. Not only has this been one of the most productive years in my studio but it has also been the biggest year in terms of doing business. I've had more collector visits, modeling sessions, business meetings and impromptu visits to my studio than ever before. My productivity alone has made my small 144 sq. foot studio in my home become so crowded I have very little room to work. Currently, I can only fit 5 of the 40 panels I will be painting in this series. Most importantly it has become a necessity for me to separate my business from my home and family and to create a space large enough to not only give me the space to work on my Dante project and my commission work but to have a space large enough to display the work for my collectors. In short, I need a new studio space. Fortunately, I have a 160-year-old carriage house in the back of my property and the carpentry talents to transform this space on my own. I've already begun work framing out the interior but I do not have enough funds to complete the project in time for the changing seasons. I am asking for help to enable me to build a new 600 square foot studio that is adequate for me to work in. It will require me to frame out a floor and walls, insulate, drywall and put in a heating system to allow me to work in it during the coming winter months. If you can contribute in any way you will be directly responsible for helping me see my epic Dante's Inferno series through to the end in 2021. I thank you in advance for your kind generosity.
