“I had the pleasure of staying in the art studio the summer of 2011 for the months of July, August, September, and October...and "wow" what a beautiful studio! Tons of natural light, high ceilings, great ventilation, lots of open space in a quiet peaceful setting made doing art a real joy. Belinda was always attentive to any needs I had with regards to the studio or surroundings while always respecting my privacy. This is a great place to let your creative juices flow while enjoying the beauty of New Mexico...Belinda thanks again....Kirk"
"The Art Studio is a dream! A true working studio with wide-open indoor and outdoor spaces. Perfectly prepared living space. Completely uninterrupted work time. Beaming daylight and total evening blackness. Wonderful silence. Perfect for inspiration. My two-week weaving retreat was an unimagined gift. Linda Running- Bentley (www.lindarunningbentley.com)
"I love this studio! Belinda provides such a wonderful and customized client experience. From my first call to her to follow up, she is there 100% for all of my needs. I have used the studio for both group and individual coaching work. As my work is creative in nature, all of my clients have loved it! The space is perfectly set up, with the kitchen, the art space and the view! Oh, my, the view -- so inspiring. Truly a space for transformational work -- be it creating art or the creative art of life! Thank you, Belinda for providing such a unique and perfect space" -- Patty Walters (www.pattywalters.com
"Belinda's art studio is a gift: spacious, lovely, comfortable, filled with light and glorious views. More importantly for me is that it sits next to miles of open BLM land so that the quiet and stillness are almost palpable. So quiet that I can easily hear the occasional yips of coyotes or the hoots of owls and, better yet, if I get still enough myself, even my own muse. Considering that it is a short ride into the city, for its size and amenities, it has got to be the best-priced studio in or around Santa Fe." David Pascale, Photographer
“Belinda has a beautiful place in Eldorado to use to step away from the stress of daily life; when you need to concentrate; when you need to be inspired; when you need to draw or write, or come up with a business concept to take your business to the next level, as I did when I visited Belinda's amazing studio - you need to contact Belinda and book with her. Not only will you get a marvelous place, but the warmest, most caring host you can imagine - Don't wait - go for it and enjoy!” Axel Meierhoefer, PhD, Executive coach
During my spring sojourn at Belinda’s studio in the high desert, I saw antelope and quail often come by in the morning. The setting is quiet and around the studio are 4,000 acres of State Trust wild lands. The studio’s high ceilings, amazing views of open skies and the nearby Sangre de Christo Mountains are good for the spirit and a creative or contemplative nature. I found it easy to settle into the peaceful environment and concentrate on my writing. Rodney Ledya
Cynthea Kinnaman says:
“I attended a weekend workshop at Belinda's art studio. The studio is spacious and well-maintained, with wonderful light. It's terrrific for both small seminar/workshop situations and for private retreats for artists and writers. There's even a sleeping area for overnights. Amenities include a kitchenette and modern bathroom. The studio is private, yet just a mile or so from an excellent grocery store and restaurants. Belinda is an excellent communicator and extremely gracious. I highly recommend this rental space!”
"I had the good fortune to rent a live in studio in Eldorado, NM from Belinda. The studio is ideal with a large work space, perfect light, a well equipped kitchen, large bedroom and beautiful bathroom. It is surrounded on all sides by beautiful mountain views and two adjacent patios. Belinda is extremely thoughtful and accommodating giving attention to each detail that can make an artist's stay as pleasant and productive as possible. I plan to return to this studio as often as possible." Nancy Thayer
Belinda is a wonderful host and the studio space is the hot
ticket for anyone who desires to have a superior flood of natural light (north
facing windows in the studio give a spectacular view) and to create in such an
expansive and comfy space. Our gracious host was uber-thorough in explaining
everything we needed to know when we settled in for our week stay and was
completely helpful and accommodating with anything that came up. The studio is on the SW corner of Eldorado, so to the west
and south, there is only undeveloped ranch land which you can hike across and
enjoy truly spectacular vistas. Very comfortable, a great artists getaway,
plenty of amenities to get the food requirements wrangled, and just 15 minutes
to Santa Fe. We saw pronghorn antelope, a beautiful bobcat, some lizards (no
snakes), spring jackrabbits, a beautiful bluebird that came to the yard right
outside the studio window every morning and more...what else could you ask for?
A wonderful experience, we miss it already, thank you Belinda!
