The Studio

My husband’s family purchased this home in 1947, and we bought it from them in 1983 when we were married.  There are many things I love about this 1880 house. One is how it’s set back about 400 feet off of the main road, giving it an air of privacy, especially when the house disappears behind the veil of leaves.  Visitors to Maple Brook often speak about an overall feeling of comfort and calm…, a good energy place.   

Bill and his Dad built this addition in the 1960s as an in-law apartment for Bill’s maternal grandparents. We turned the space into my studio in 1991. As I walk from the main house into the studio, I often feel as if I am walking into a special space where creativity thrives.
