Holy smokes. I am moving my studio + office this week. I’m really doing it. It’s taking forever. I’m having some who do I think I am gremlins. I’m totally stressed as crucial deadlines are due in the midst of all of this chaos. But I am doing it. A little in disbelief, but this place is just amazing. Location is amazing. And it turns out that this building houses a ton of self care businesses (yoga, therapy, spa, salon, massage, naturopaths, etc) so now I really have zero excuse to not take better care. I think this space/building/location will do wonders for my work, my body, my mind. OMG!
Here’s a peek at what’s going on:
Meet my newest studio assistant: my mom! That’s her desk area behind her (still unpacking) and she will be taking Dani’s place (current assistant). I will miss Dani HUGELY (she’s doing her own thing now – so happy for her!), but incredibly glad to have my mom on board. Isn’t she a cute employee?
Getting there. My dad built my farm table desk (to the right, buried underneath stuff) and the studio/painting area is on the far right.
This will be the main painting table – it’s an old door I bought for $5. The bed spring above will be super useful…
Unpacking a studio is serious detail work. My head is spinning with how to put it all together – the paints, the paper, the markers….so much stuff. Today, the drill and I had a few mishaps. I had to take a walk around the block to blow off some steam – mean drill.
As soon as we settle in, the shop will reopen (likely next week). Stay tuned…can’t wait to share finished photos of the space when it all comes together.
