Marion Bradish: a creative urge, a second career

Listen to this story
As part of an on-going series, we'll bring you some of the voices of the many folks in the North Country who make a living in their own workshops, basements and spare rooms. It might sound charming - setting your own work hours - but the artisans we've talked to say full-time art is not an easy decision and a lot of hard work. Finding space, commissions, marketing, moral support, and reserving uninterrupted creative time are some of the challenges.

Today, it's a trip to an artist's home in a small community between Potsdam and Malone. Marion Bradish has set up her home studio, "buried in the back woods," as she calls it, in the hamlet of Buckton, along the St. Regis River. A year ago, Bradish took a mid-life career leap from an office job to creating her own artist studio where she paints and teaches.
