As you can see, the studio is now finished. Okay, so the floor space didn't grow any, but the organization is fantastic! In the first shot, you see part of the new counter and cupboard space which houses work that is framed and matted, and provides working space. In the second shot, you see the repositioned sink, the HIDDEN diptank, and yes, more cupboards.

In the third shot you see my inking table and press, and in the last shot, a new cabinet which houses all my bits and pieces, framing needs, scissors, hammers, extra mats and boards, tape, and rollers....all the stuff that loves to clutter surfaces...neatly tucked away until they are needed.

There is a new ceramic floor which is wonderful to roll the press out on, and to keep clean, a spray gun on the sink (YES!), and I love it. Don worked hard on this, taking it back to the studs, redoing foors, walls, windows and plumbing, drywalling and doors.

So...now it is down to work, which I am happily doing. I'm experimenting with collograph and working on new etching plates, getting ready to take part in the 150 VOV project in Victoria (stands for 150 years Visions of Victoria, and you can find information on the GZP Society web page, or check out my events page), and getting ready for Artcraft. I'll be at the Pender Island Farmers Market starting May 19th demonstrating printmaking for anyone who will be in the area and would like to stop by and visit. And, of course, you are always welcome to stop by my studio on Pirates Road and come in for a cup of tea. Look for the Tulifanya Studio sign.

Looking forward to a good, warm summer....
