home of an artist

Imagine being an artist and living in a place like this one! German artist Katrin Arens turned this
ancient nunnery into a home and a studio. It's located in the Italian region of Lombardy, by the
river Adda, not so far from Milan. I love the white, crisp and raw look.

I think it's best to let the photos do all the talking (I left one out so click the link below if you
want to see it and read the article in French).
