Your ceiling height is kind of low, but I suppose you can get by with it in a pinch. It does not leave much room, especially if you have to bounce lights. If you're dead set on going forward, it's going to take some effort. I just moved my studio and elected not to build a cove this time. Just not as necessary as it used to be. I did build a 25x25 corner cove that was 16 feet tall and it was great for a lot of things, but unless you cove it back into the ceiling, you will often run out of wall on the top end. I use pre-made fiberglass sections from a company in Florida that seems to no longer be around. Those used a 36" radius and if I were to do it again, I would want something more like a 60" radius, which give you a much easier corner to light. Of course, the larger radius eats up more floor space.
I know people who have cut radius guides from sheets of plywood - sort of like ribs I guess, and then fastened 1/8 inch masonite to that and finally blend that into the wall and floor with drywall mud. Doing a wall that way is not too hard, but a radiused corner is the tricky part. You can ponder that one for a while.
