New Studio at The Hive in DTLA

Hello there! I've been busy the last couple of weeks setting up my new studio at The Hive Gallery & Studios. Here are some photos to give you a sense, but also feel free to stop by and see for yourself - gallery hours below.

My easel and part of my workspace - it's hard to capture the whole space without falling off the edge. Don't worry, there's a bannister for safety!

The Hive is a multi-use space that has rotating group shows in the front 2 rooms, then wall space for rent in the back where artists can display and sell their artwork. Upstairs are studio spaces for artists to work in. The Hive was voted "Best Art Gallery 2013" by the LA Weekly's Reader Choice 2013.

I got lucky because my space is a hybrid - it's a loft (accessible by ladder only!) built above the display walls where I can both paint and display my work.

Regular gallery hours at The Hive are 1-6PM Wed-Sat, plus an opening reception for a new group show every month on the First Saturday, 8-11PM. We also participate in DTLA Art Walk every Second Thursday, 4-11PM (The Hive was voted the best stop on the Art Walk by the LA Weekly in 2014).
