This morning I saw an update on Facebook that intrigued me. Seth Apter is doing a fun little collective project showing real artist studio tables. These are working artist tables not the fancy photos shown in those artist magazines. I have a love/hate relationship with those magazines. I wonder how long the artists cleaned in preparation for the studio shoots and some of the spaces appear too beautiful to make art in. I dream of a bigger better studio with actual windows so I definitely get a little jealous. Instead I work in my unfinished basement. The bonus of working in an unfinished space is I don’t have to worry about wrecking pristine floors and walls. It’s a little like working in a cave though. As a mixed media artist I use a lot of different supplies so prepare yourself.
This is my primary mixed media art work space. I’m in the midst of serious production time. I have a number of fall arts festival and shows coming up as well as the busy holiday Etsy season. The bright pink board is the beginning of a new project.
Here is my other work table where I create magnets, pins, and other goodies with my art. I have two loyal button presses. I need a lot of different drawers and containers to keep track of all the different button parts and pieces.
