Welcome to Mitzi's Studio

My apartment in Eugene's tallest building is tiny. I imagine it to be like a New York apartment, with all available spaces to be used. Here's part of my collection of things from living in Oaxaca off and on for 20 plus years, as well as various paintings made over those same years. In the photo you can see a Tree of Life candle made in Teotitlan, at the top on the right. They are usually found in the church there and are given to the family of the bride-to-be in a beautiful ceremony called "Contentar" The paintings are some of my favorites which I have kept over the years.
A closer view of part of the art wall including a painted chair from Margarito Melchor of San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca. Two jicapetzles sit on the bottom shelf. After being a nomad and housesitter over the years, I am pleased to surround myself with things I like from my travels.
