WINTER STREET STUDIOS FIRE: Inexplicably, a photography business in the building where my studio is was attacked by an arsonist who fire bombed the studio over a financial dispute and committed suicide. Along with the photographer's studio, adjacent studios were completely destroyed and ALL of the artists at Winter Street have some form of smoke, soot or water damage to artwork and equipment, including me. Please make contributions to the Winter Street Studios Relief Fund here to help us out. I am hoping that I will be able to cover my losses through my insurance and this fund but if not please keep your eyes out for a GoFundMe campaign. Not only does most of my artwork need to be remediated to remove soot and smoke smell but I also have to relocate to another studio while the building is being repaired due to structural damage from the fire.
