When we moved into our house in 2015, the space that is now my studio was a sunroom annex off of what is now our daughter's bedroom. As you can see, it was a tad dingy and VERY yellow. After much consideration, we decided to build a dividing wall, which made the bedroom smaller and created a tiny hallway conduit. Et voila: my studio! It's not huge, and it gets pretty warm sometimes and frigid at other times. But, this small, well-lit, breezy space is all mine! I can even close the door when I leave, so that when I return everything is still in the same place (a key factor when sharing a house with two curious kids under the age of five). It's quiet, bright, and my generous windows face the yard, which someday will be even lovelier and full of shady trees and fragrant blooms, as I like to imagine. Having this space, separate from all the distractions of the rest of my domestic life, has been key to me being able to make art these past two years. I feel so grateful to call it mine.
Take a gander below to see more pictures and details about how I organize my space.
