Studio Spotlight -

I've been buried with sketches this week but submitted the last of them this morning, so I'd thought I'd treat you to another studio visit - this time of fellow POBLite, Suzy Cyr, and her SeaHorse Studio -

I try not to feel too jealous, but Suzy's studio is an addition on her house, so she got to design it from the ground up -

It is a large, lovely, sun drenched room with nearly floor-to-ceiling windows -

- and many, many, cool, thematic details -

Her art specialities range from traditional illustration to large watercolor or Yupo paintings -

as well as seaweed pressings and breathtaking silk paintings -

A couple of years ago I blogged about the stag that she covered in painted silk for the city of Bellevue (it is truly gorgeous - do follow the link). However, the stag was vandalized at one point, and Suzy was called to do repairs - which mostly consisted of a new set of antlers and some touch up. In a truly inspired stroke of whimsy, her husband mounted the damaged pair and they now hang proudly on her studio wall.

She's even designed her own tiles for her studio floor. So from top to bottom and everywhere in between, it is a delight and inspiration to experience.

I don't know about jealousy, but I am feeling a deep deep green of envy...all that light! All that space!

I'm drooling with envy. I would never leave if that was my studio. It's beautiful as is her work.

The agony of it all. What I wouldn't give for a decent studio like that:¬( I'm sure the kitchen/dining room doesn't qualify:¬( It's a real stinky nightmare to work in when someone burns the toast!

I'm supposed to be a professional!;¬)
