Studio Space Downsize

DaVinci quote

This quote by Leonard Da Vinci is going to be put to the test as I settle into my new studio space – a compact 8′ x 6.5′ room. This is the space where I sculpt and create my figurative sculptures and commissions. It’s where I will be developing, photographing and filming new workshops and tutorials. And it will undoubtedly be my favourite place in the house.

To maximize my space, I installed peg boards around the room and IKEA553A12E1-CA50-4514-97A9-C3F3B5CBD824 picture shelves to hold paint, clay, jars of buttons, glues, etc. . .  My old metal tool cabinet serves to hold all the little bits and pieces I’ve collected over the years and my workbench has added storage underneath. It’s compact and it’s efficient, and hopefully many beautiful things will come from this space.

Having a designated studio space means you don’t have to spend time packing and unpacking your supplies and tools. It’s not about the size of the space or what the view is from the window. It could be a corner in the kitchen, a closet, a spare room or the garage. Many successful and dedicated artists create beautiful art in small studios.  What’s important is that you create.

“Setting up a dedicated space for your art sends a message to both you and the universe that says, this is important and meaningful to me, and I want to give it space in my life.” Tara Leaver
