thorberg - artist’s residence -  2004-2010

It’s hard to imagine how many different spaces I’ve encountered since it all began.  In 1984, at age fifteen, I literally did a complete remodel on my first bedroom. It included a built in fish tank, sky painted ceiling, rough cedar wainscot with secret compartments, speakers that blew out incense and multiple hand drawn murals.  Lucky to have some cool parents!

Since then nothing has changed.  Something always

needs to be built, re-built, designed, painted, and given a little love.  It will always be that way, and even though I have phased out of most construction based projects, there is always something new to discover.

Creative Spirit Studios is still available for most of your interior design ideas and needs. The main focus now remains on the ART & DESIGN.  Please contact me any time if your are looking for any of the following:
