I dreamed of living in a round house so when this geodesic dome in Joshua Tree became available I knew it was meant to be. The dome was completely gutted and remodeled, furnished with loving care. This property contains my dream home and also my dream artist studio. Time and space for painting, ceramics, sculpture, and photography amidst rejuvenating spiritual sanctuary, nurturing the soul and cultivating artistic practice. There is available outdoor studio space for visiting guests who wish to create during their desert holiday. We host festive celebration dinners here in our garden of earthly delights.
