I love spending time in my studio. It is located inside my home, but isn't in a separate room hidden away from distractions. I have tried that before, felt it was necessary, but I only felt disconnected. Being in the center of the house where life can affect my every sense is perfect for me: the commotions of a young family (plus dog!), ambient noise from our wilderness, smells from the kitchen, and the warm natural light that fills the house.
