I'm VERY excited to post the very FIRST "Studio Visit" with one of my all time FAVORITE artists Mel Birnkrant. It was about three weeks ago I had the AMAZING opportunity to visit Mel at his museum/home and discuss his art, toy collection, friendships and ideas about creating art!
Mel is an AMAZING person and an AMAZING artist and was more than generous sharing his wisdom on creating art and philosophy on collecting. Mel currently has one of the largest and most AMAZING vintage toy collections from the 1930's and 40's on the planet!

A HUGE thank you to Mel for helping me start a new section of "Studio Visits" on the site! I hope to have lots more to come!
