We’ve been in our new home in Sisters, OR for about 3 years. In that time, my studio, which is a sunny spare room in our home, has had a few different setups/layouts. For as long as I can remember, it has always taken me a lot to time to settle into a space. I often change rooms around until they feel just right. Anyway, I’ve had this latest setup for a bit now, and it feels just right!
I thought I’d take you on a little tour!
I have little ledges built on the walls that act as my easels, which is super convenient for a smallish studio. This photo shows one of my painting areas, but there is another wall to the right where I also paint. I also paint a lot of smaller works on the blue round table in the middle of the room.
I just roll my cart around between the painting areas as needed. Just about all of my art supplies that I use are on this cart. So handy!
On this ledge, I keep various finished works as well as works still in progress. What I love about the wall ledges/easels is that I can store canvases under them, all around the room which helps with storage.
One of my favorite spots is this huge cozy chair where I often read, chill, pause, look out the window, or snuggle with the dogs and/or True.
I’m totally obsessed with this old pie safe that I used in my old retail shop. Nowadays, it lives in my little studio and holds all sorts of stuff, mainly card decks, books, magazines.
I converted the room’s closet into my desk area, which I love, love, love. I recently invested in my very first desktop ever. I have been working on a laptop since 2006 when I started my creative business, and I had NO IDEA how dreamy it is to have an actual desktop with a large screen. it more than I can say.
I’ve been spending a lot of time using this particular space as I gear up to launch the NEW Art Dates With Kelly Rae & Friends, which let me just say has my heart all kinds of excited.
I have lots of plants in this space, too, which I find so soothing and calming.
There you have it my friends! I hope you enjoyed this little tour. I have had all kinds of studio spaces through the years and this little one is nourishing me up in all the best ways. I am especially excited to use it these next many months as I focus on all new things happening over here!
