I bought this building in 1993 with my husband Arnt Arntzen (www.arntarntzen.com) and own it with another couple. In the city of Vancouver, BC, it is hard to have studio stability with buildings being renovated, torn down or rents going up so both Arnt and I are very fortunate to own ours. We also have a space we rent to four lovely and talented artists.
Arnt and I were also involved in helping to create 2 other artists buildings in the late 80's/early 90's in Vancouver and they are still used by artists. One is also home to the Franc Gallery and the other runs White Monkey.
My studio is just over 500 square feet and I share it with Sharon Petty www.ampstudio.ca who is a photographer and mixed media artist.
