Day 55

I wish I could describe what is going on in my studio right now. The sparkle in these three is so captivating. But I can’t capture it in a photo or video! Frustrating. These pieces really need to be seen in person. I think it’s time for another exhibition. I just don’t know where. Or how. Or when. I’ll figure it out. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Day 53

Today’s #marchmmeetthemaker is #workspace! I already showed you my messy studio last week. And I have to say, it isn’t MUCH better, yet. I am still organizing pigments. I need a couple more shelves! 😲 It is getting there though! I have been so much happier since my move into the bigger space!

Day 24

If you haven’t seen my studio in a while, it is because it is a huge mess. I don’t understand these artists’ profiles that are so pristine and perfect. I think they have professional photographers come over after they have cleaned out everything in their studios. It just doesn’t seem real to me. My studio is like a mad-scientists lab. There are things everywhere. No matter how hard I try to stay tidy, in the moment of creation, nothing else matters. Then night comes and I am too tired to clean up, just to make a mess the next day.

My painting studio is tiny. It is less than 10’x10’. It consists of two drafting tables, two work benches, shelves, flat files, and stacks of things. There isn’t a lot of room to move around. I have a larger space in my basement that is dedicated to framing, packaging, and storage. I am saving my money right now to build a large space on my property, so I can take on more students and teach workshops. This will hopefully happen within the next two years.

Artist/makers, do you have any cleaning /organizing tips?

Day 13

I have been asked so often lately about my materials. I have a really hard time answering, because my material list has gotten rather complicated over the last year. I don’t think I can answer the question in one post, but I will try to start talking about it more here and there, starting now.

I guess today I would like to prelude the question with some background. I was a painter, then I was a printmaker, and now I am an artist. I am an alchemist. I am a witch. And that is how I look at my process and materials.
