Studio Space: Park City
Bridgette Meinhold



Our recent articles on encaustic painting in Utah led us to Bridgette Meinhold, an artist who lives with her husband in an A-frame house nestled in an idyllic aspen grove outside of Park City. Her studio is in an old shipping container that has been painted a phthalo blue, had four windows cut into its metal sides and been hauled up to 7000 feet for a new life. The studio is insulated for the winter months, and its windows let in sufficient natural light and a pleasant breeze in nice weather. Meinhold, whose background is in engineering, uses half the space for her landscape-inspired encaustic paintings. In the other half her husband uses his wood shop to transform dead-standing aspen trees into frames for Meinhold's work. Meinhold is also a freelance writer who is currently working on a book on sustainable housing solutions.

eGrowing up in California (and now hanging in my brothers' home in Toronto) two of our walls had VERY LARGE wooden molds used for making the Gears on Trains. They were oddly beautiful with hand painted numbers on them. I'm going to get them back!


An original Diane Stetson (artist from New Mexico) hangs above our mantel.
