I just reorganized my artspace to make more room for more works in progress.

I work on many pieces simultaneously - not just mail art: paper, mixed media, collage, panels- and I had run out of space to place incomplete work as it dries. So I built a storage rack with many shelves, shown here in the back corner. Now my…Continue

Here's my artspace today, about like it usually looks. Semi-controlled chaos.

If you search für a long time on flee markets to find THE scissor, and at the end by a new expensive Lärche.... You use only one or two and have to find a place to rest for the others

this is my current project in action on my desk.

i had accumilated enough stamps to warrent buying some more EZ mount cling foam so i purchased 4 sheets of it. and have just spent about an hour, doing a jigsaw like planning arrangment to fit them on a sheet without too much space wastage.

I now need to cut them and separate them. and thats very sticky tacky work. my fingers always get really gummed up as does my cutting blade.

Always fascinating to see art spaces! 

My studio apartment was about 33 square meters ( 350 square feet?) and it was my bedroom, living room, kitchen, library...and art space. Vizma came and visited back in 2012.

Well it was sold last year, and I had to pack it all up:

(those are boxes and boxes of mail rt!)

 I was fortunate to rent a 30 square meter apartment in the same building as my son's place, (and my always mailing address). It is still a chore "unpacking" and finding space for everything. One day I'll have to post photos of an "organized "art space", if and when that may be?

"Studio 20"

The table top work area gets smaller over time. It'd due for a clean up but I've got an idea for a drawing so set up for that today. Some days, there's only room to do an ATC! hahaha  It's a very small room with one large window but the table is too long to fit in that area. Instead, my sewing machine table is set up by the window. The other wall is a built in book case with a tiny desk area for my laptop, and room for my ironing board always open used for both ironing and an extra work top. And lucky, me a small closet with a file big file cabinet, and hangers full of fabric, and storage above. I'm so fortunate. And this space is in our house, the former bedroom of our daughter, so I don't have far to go to get to my studio. Our children grew up in a studio. We didn't have a "family" room, we had a big room that my husband and I shared and the children played in it. They had access to all materials. The only rule was let us know when we run out of something. And be careful with sharp tools. hahahha They both are adults, they survived sharp things, and they're artists.

In Halifax, NS, they have reassembled the entire small cottage (tiny home) lived in by Canadian artist, Maude Adams. 

The inside of the house. 

How it looked in the lifetime of the artist (my husband was born in the same town as this house existed... Yarmouth, NS).
