A year ago I was in Novi, Michigan working on the Phoenix Girl Sculpture in a big beautiful studio space .....dreaming of one day having a space to call my own where I can build BIG and dream even bigger.
Every so often I would check listings to see if anything was remotely within my price range - and be big enough to be really worth it. A little more than a week ago, I saw this building. A very familiar space in my hometown. It was up for lease- and shockingly - it was in my price range. I called. Saw it. Signed the papers.
Moved in the next day. Isn't it so pretty!!!!
(story continues below.....)
The absolute coolest thing though, was that ON THE DAY I signed the papers - the memory below popped up. A year to the day of posting this I had exactly what I was dreaming of. Not posted was the fact that I was starting to get sad about finishing up this sculpture and leaving this space. I really wanted a place to work like this and did not see how it would be possible...... and then it just was. sigh. I am so happy I just decided to look at the new listings that morning. So happy I took a chance and called. So happy I jumped at the possibility and made it happen.
Shannon Marie makes.... a lot. This is where I can explain what I am doing and why, show new work and ideas. ...and .... It is also a good place for me to just share the random thoughts that run through my head while I am creating. Enjoy the madness!
