My studio assistant - Megan Keenan

Megan is an OCADU student who helps me in my studio. I have known her for many years. When I ran classes for kids in my studio several years ago, she was one of my students and she and her family have since become good friends.

My studio is approximately 1000 square feet. It consists of a framing room with a stretching table and library wall, 2 working rooms with wall space that accomodates anywhere from 10 to 20 paintings, depending on the sizes. There's counters, cupboards, drafting table and filing cabinets scattered thoughout and then there is also a large closet to store all my prepared canvases. The following photos takes you on a tour of my space.
