I rearranged my little library room last week to include a small studio space. I was reading the feature on Mary Ann Moss in the new issue of Art Journaling magazine and I was inspired by her small studio in the 2nd bedroom of her home. I have a big studio space in the basement but a)it’s too cold down there in the winter and b)I don’t much like working in a space that feels far away from the rest of the house. So I’ve been working at the dining room table: bad light and big messes I keep having to clean up so people can actually eat in there.
I love this cozy new space! There’s room for my favorite art supplies but not much more so I don’t have room to get overwhelmed with too many choices. I still have a comfy chair for reading and lots of nooks for cats (they are all 3 in here with me right now). I really love having a table where I can sit and look out the window, something I’ve never had in a studio space before. I can’t wait to create in this space!
I’ve been doing some other bits of rearranging around here: mostly of the mental and lifestyle variety. Small changes to improve my energy level and re-balance my relationship with time.
