This is the study. It may look cluttered, but I sort of need that. I’ve often been accused of nesting – which is me putting together piles of related items that need to be visible to me so I can “get to them.” I don’t usually address nests, I eventually clean them up (to make room for new nests). I make the nests so that I don’t worry and focus on stuff that would get in the way of my art. Above all, the study is a place that I can focus in and forget everything else. At least I try.
