New Digs!

I recently began subletting a studio space in the Trafalgar Building, located in downtown Guelph.  The space belongs to painter Pearl Van Geest, who is currently in Windsor doing her MFA and I will be sharing it with my friend and fellow maker-of-cool-shit, Ryan Cassidy.  Right next to our space are printmakers Tammy Ratcliff and Lydia Nieuwenkamp and the rest of the third floor is also dedicated to artist studios.  You have no idea how thrilled I am to be able to work in a place like this!  Just take a look:

Up to the third foor!
The studio!
Here's my corner.
There's a large painting of the Queen fixed to the ceiling. The peeling paint makes her look like a burn victim.
Rooftop access!
