This is where the magic happens!

November 12, 2016

 Like a blank canvas ready for my creative vision to appear, my clean workbench welcomes me in the morning. 


My happy studio is in a small shed attached to my home. I've done a lot of work to make it a homey and inviting place to find inspiration and creative play.


My key to working in a small space is organization.

Reducing clutter and keeping tidy helps me start each project with a fresh mind.


I keep rolling carts with tools and supplies hidden under my workbench behind a curtain.

 The carts roll out for easy access when I need them, and tuck out of sight when I don't.


Of course, once I get started, forget being tidy! Let the chaos begin! 

Soon my workbench will be covered with boxes, paper, glue, tools, and grout.


I start by pulling out trays and boxes of the small treasures I've collected, so I can easily grab whatever inspires me.


Almost everything around the home has potential: start doing assemblage art, and you will begin to see everything through a new lens. 



I use all kinds of organizers to sort my assemblage components:

  • boxes and cubbies from estate sales

  • glass ramekins

  • vintage make-up trays

  • typeset drawers



Tools are easy to reach above my workbench so that I don't have to break my creative flow to go looking for something.


With everything in its place, my studio is ready for me to create something new!
