Squam Studio

i have a fantasy that plays in my head on a fairly constant rotation. in this fantasy, i am sequestered in a cozy, organized studio, equipped with any and all supplies i might need for whatever project is at hand (or the project that may present itself on a whim) with ample space. and absolutely […]

reflections on Squam, June 2014 edition

oh Squam. you never fail to intoxicate, rejuvenate and educate me. this was my 9th (!) time at this creative gathering on a loon-filled lake in the woods of New Hampshire. i just read my account of my very first Squam experience and it all holds true to this day. it never gets old.

perhaps the hardest part of writing about art retreats is trying to capture the true flavor of the experience. every one i’ve ever been to has been deliciously inspiring and energizing. yet, even the […]

the Makerie (part 2.1): workshops/teachers THIS year!
