Welcome to my new website!
I hope you find it awesome and will visit often, catching up with me via my blog here, or checking on new work that I've posted.
I'm so very excited to announce that we are currently in the process of building my DREAM ART STUDIO!! Construction drawings will be finalized by our architect in a few weeks, with building permits to follow. This is completely designed by me as far as the architecture and interiors, and I'm creating my dream- with a gabled roof and vaulted ceilings! I'm still sourcing finishes and fixtures and will post my storyboard(s) in the future. Windows are already taken care of, (which simplifies things), since we are matching the ones in the big house- see below.
Below is one of the architects' drawings of the front of the cottage/studio. The smaller structure to the right is the existing garden shed on our property.
The design is based on my love of Cape Cod colonials and Saltbox style- see photo below.
The design is also based, more importantly, on the main, or "big" (beach) house, which is located just 50 feet south of my studio. The studio/cottage will also be shingled like the big house, have the same windows, and the same roof height. Designed by me to compliment each other.
Needless to say, things are pretty busy around here, but I'm still finding time to paint every day- at least for an hour or so! Until next time, Shann
