2004 - 2018What if
I built a funky studio and put Giclee Canada to work?
In 2004, I converted the family three-car garage in the alley into a one-car space, art gallery, and studio. With great imagination, I called the space The Alley Gallery. The area was L-shaped, about nine hundred square feet with an eighteen-foot ceiling. I painted the walls white, the floor sea blue, and hung paintings everywhere. I built a raised office at the long end of the garage to create a three-hundred square-foot work area and storage crawl space.
In 2005, to utilize my Photoshop skills, I purchased an Epson Fine Art printing business. It consisted of a large museum-quality, eight color canvas/watercolor paper printer, a slightly smaller eight color printer and a flatbed scanner complete with computer, monitor, keyboard, ink, paper and a customer list. The four-by-ten-foot storage dolly I had previously built became the printer dolly. In total, it was an expansive and complete yet roll-away work studio.
