Everything has a beginning and an end.  The old BonHommeDesigns website is officially retired and I couldn’t be more pleased with this beautiful new site so lovingly crafted with the help of Charlotte Proud.  In an effort to present my work more clearly, on a more intuitive platform, and in a way that really reflects the nature of my work, is here!  YAY!

The past year has been dedicated to my expanding my acumen as a business woman and As I step into a new era with my career as an artist I am most excited right now at the development of a studio space for myself and others in the barn at the Emerald Village, the intentional community where I live in North County San Diego. It has been quite the process of creating proposals, developing business structures to support the development, raising the finances, and getting the momentum up to actually get the work underway.  But today: It STARTS!!!  We’ll be converting three bays of the barn into a fully functioning wood and metal shop where I’ll be able to create my future masterpieces just a minute walk from house!  Woo HOO! Below are some pictures of the structure currently…

I just want to share with you all the vision that I am holding of blessing the new studio on June 30th.  I am standing in front of the new studio with all of my family, the large new sliding barn door on the side of the structure is open revealing a spacious studio space with big windows and lots of natural light.  Basic equipment including welders and torches are set up around the space and outside is a large, covered materials storage rack.  The air smells of sawdust and new paint, and a bit of metal since we’ve already been using the space a bit. I am so proud as I look into the eyes of each of my friends as we raise a glass of champagne and toast this incredible accomplishment.  I am eager to begin work, but relishing the feeling of success at a job well done!
