Have you ever been to Picton?
Well. Now you have a reason to go!!
This past summer-2011 that is- I spent a very happy week at Spark Box Studio.
Spark Box is a wonderful creative environment housed in an updated farm house that sits in the rural fringe of downtown Picton.
The super-duper-fabulous creators/artists/owners of Spark Box- Chrissy Poitras, and Kyle Topping have arranged the space in and around the house into studio space where visiting artists can set up and work.
The space there is ideal in every way, it is peaceful, comfortable, creative, inspiring, and in many ways it feel like home, without all the chores. They also have a lovely little pet called Rico, who is a dog that will charm any heart.
Spark Box was such a great place to be I felt very lucky to have been selected for a residency there! And I plan on visiting again at some point.
I felt compelled to write about them today as I discovered a post about them on Design Sponge.
But you should really just check out their site HERE and become a supporting member!!!! Or at least follow what they are up to.
I think every community could use a duo like Kyle and Chrissy.
Yay Spark Box!!!
