I finally have a studio office, and it’s light filled. Here, I can spread out my little collection of objects which inspire my jewelry and artwork, old books, papers, and supplies. My collage paintings are on the walls and family photos are also on display. The theme is maps and vintage objects. The two collage paintings above the desk were done while I was in Slovenia during an artist retreat.
I found the old school map of Tuscany at the flea market in Piazza Ciompi. I refurbished the chair and upholstered it with fabric on which I screen printed a map of Florence. The table is decorated with a map of Sicily map showing Gangi, Cammarata, and Cerami — my ancestral towns.
