my space

I have found it really interesting looking at other peoples studio spaces... So I thought I would show you mine. It is in a sunny spot at the end of the kitchen.

The wooden unit at the end has most of my supplies I use on a day to day basis, luckily my work is usually quite small as I don't have much room for drying and storing of half finished works. But it is funny when I clear off the table completely I still seem to work on only a small area. I have had a few pieces of work that our cat 'Holly' has put her mark on... if I leave them lying around she stands on them (for some reason she like to sit on paper)? when she feels the stickyness of the ink she shakes her foot then runs away leaving little cat prints all over the floor and fluff all over the work.

And in the pictures below is my store cupboard where I keep the supplies that I don't need so often, or where I shove things when we have people come round.

I love my little area where I can play and create, it is so very important for me to have this space. I am looking forward to getting into it tonight after work and the shopping and getting tea and tending to kids... to get in there and get my hands dirty.

I love getting to peak inside people's creative space. It says so much. and I like to imagine them, you, working here, creating, following your bliss.
