2004 - 2018What if...
I built a studio
and added Giclee Production
In 2004 I converted the family 3 car garage into a one-car garage, art gallery, and studio which we euphemistically called The Alley Gallery. The space was L shape, about 900 sq. ft. with an 18’-0 ceiling. I painted the walls white, the floor sea blue, and hung paintings everywhere. I built the office/studio at the long end at the 4-foot level, to create 300 sq. ft. office/studio and under office storage crawl space.
In 2005, to utilize my Photoshop skills, I purchased an Epson Fine Art printing business. It consisted of a 24” museum-quality, 8 color canvas/watercolor paper printer, an 18” - 8 color printer, a 12” x 18” flatbed scanner, computer, monitor, keyboard, ink, paper & a customer list. The 4’ W x 10’ L x 3.5’ H storage dolly I had previously built became the printer dolly. A roll-away large work surface complete with everything built-in.
