Welcome to my kitchen! This is where I produce almost all the artwork that you see; Cutting, hammering, gluing, painting...anything. It's almost all done here. The only things that don't get birthed in this space are sewing projects (the lamp shade to 'Lamp #2
' was done in my bedroom) and mechanical cutting -the circular saw you see here was used outside.
And that's what most 'studios' are. They are not two story massive spaces, or offsite equipped rooms and buildings. The typical artists studio is a basement, an attic, a garage, a bedroom, a table, a closet, a corner, or just the floor. If you have a completely separate space to work on your art, that is awesome (!!), but you are in the minority.
It would be killer to have a dedicated 'art studio', but it's not a reality for most, including me. While my kitchen space is my main creative area, my entire apartment is 'my studio'. It's not a 'studio apartment' but a 'apartment studio'. I sleep in, beside, below, above, and around my work.
The space is less important than the idea. Your brain is your studio. If you have that, then you can figure out the rest.
Now, the picture you see here is the chopped crate that I mentioned previously. I'm turning it into a frame for 'The Keys Of Color'. Sanding, staining, and then attaching is next! PS: I'll eventually use the side cuts you see here for future projects, or they will get recycled in the end!
