An Artist's Migration

John Phillip's Former Studio
This was Johns studio Warren Street before his planned move uptown. He sold this space and needed somewhere to paint.



John is now painting in his former cramped kitchen space while waiting for his uptown studio to be finished.








By the end of the year this renovation to his new space will be finished and John will move in and grandly paint again. Notice the incredible skylights,
