I had the best intentions to clean up my studio space before posting photos, but it’ll be the end of the year before that’s likely to happen, so I’ll let you see a typical view of my workspace and environment.
I have a potentially great studio space. It's an internal, L-shaped single car garage. The first thing I did 3 years ago when we moved into our house was take the metal roller door off and replace it with french doors to let the light in. I painted it white, put up some shelving and had some extra power points put in.
It was all good until I realised I had to share the space with my partner and our two children! As they get older my children have increased their interests to include welding, paper mache, woodwork and anything else that can take up a lot of storage room! On top of that my partner likes to home-brew. So the image of the other end of my studio space isn't quite as appealing.
The internal door leads into the house corridor and then there’s another door leading straight out into the courtyard where my kiln is housed. It’s too dark to photograph that now, so I’ll save that for a later post.
I am continually trying to work out better ways of using the wonderful space I have and it is always great to see other artist's studios and workspaces. That is why the JAC Inside My Studio article is most often my favourite article in each edition.
