Little Vipers Daycare
When gallery sales are slow, I sometimes work part-time jobs to fill in the financial gaps. Last year, after five luxurious years of working full-time in my studio, the economy took its toll on my career and I had to look for other work. I was fortunate enough to find a part-time, flexible, stress-free job at a non-profit. I slowly acclimated to office culture, complete with potlucks, gossip, and composite surfaces gleaming under the florescents. Quite the change from my peaceful, turn-of-the century adobe studio that opens into the garden, with dogs, birds, and toads to keep me company while working on whatever inspires my creativity at the moment. I think they like having me in the office, the only creative presence in the whole place. Sometimes, they just want me for my ideas. And that’s fine.
