Living and working with spinal adhesive arachnoiditis
(a spinal cord injury caused by
the neurotoxins in spinal injections
and invasive spinal procedures)
requires effective management
of my vertical time.

Thank you for your continued respect for these reasonable accommodations.
Limited off-street parking is available at the studio. Additional limitations may apply during inclement weather.

Car-pooling from the West Dyke Street Lot at Island Park~Rt 417 takes you right to South Main Street and up the hill to the studio~ is recommended. View the Map

Additional parking is available in the front portion of the lot at Bob's Farm Market when the Market is Closed. Located diagonally across the street from the studio; Bob has given his consent for occasional use of this space. Courtesy and Respect for his customers and property are greatly appreciated.

For Best Results Contact the studio to discuss or pre-arrange any accessibility concerns.

Participants of all abilities are welcome at Studio Events. The Artist/Owner is a Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivor unable to provide physical assistance to patrons in need. ONE Adult Personal Assistant to persons in need may attend paid events for FREE if arranged in advance.

The front entrance has three steps and the outer door entrance is 31" wide.
This may be too narrow for a standard wheel chair. Wheel chair access will require a physically able-bodied person(s) to lift and/or fold the chair, assist the participant, etc.

Weather-permitting, a vehicle can pull up in the front drive-way for easy access to the front sidewalk.
The studio space is quite open and, to the best of our ability, tables & chairs can be arranged to meet specific needs if requested in advance. As this is a home-based studio and business in a house built in 1917 in a residential area, specific ADA accessibility requirements have not yet been met.
Grant applications and funding searches are now in progress to remedy this situation.
Sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
