What one word would you use to describe your studio? Efficient.

What do you think is the best features of your studio? the layout makes great use of the space. The windows provide good ventilation and   I  like the way that the room, even though it is in the center of our home, still feels like it is its own space.

What would you change if you could? A larger space would be nice.

Can you share an organizational tip? Because the space is so small I only keep the supplies that I use most out in the studio. I store most of my supplies in Sterilite bins in a walk in closet that is about 20 feet from the studio. Grouping the supplies in bins makes it easy to pull out what I need and then put it back after I use it.

Describe the usual state of your work table? organized for the most part.

Does your work table face out into the room or toward the wall? Both. I sit between 2 work tables, one faces toward a wall the other face into the room but there is just about 18″ before the next wall of book shelves.

What’s one drawback of your studio/artistic space? It’s a bit cramped. I share it with my husband as it functions as our office too.

Do you have any studio mascots (pets, mannequin whatever)? I have a goat scull hung on the wall if that counts as a mascot. he is missing half of one of his horns. I hung him up to remind me that even though things are not always symmetrical and perfect they still can be beautiful.

Do you have an idea wall or inspiration board? no but I keep sketchbooks and idea journals close by. I also have a slideshow of inspirational images running as my screensaver on the computer all the time.

Do you listen to music in your studio? Absolutely! All the time.  What kind? Everything from Classical and Opera to Rap and Punk rock. MY musical taste is VERY wide. I love that I can make a playlist that fits my mood or the work that I am doing at the time. I also like to listen to NPR as I work.

Do you display your own work in your studio? just pieces I am working on

What’s one quirk or unusual feature of your studio? The windows open up into an alley way, so the view is a brick wall. but they provide great cross ventilation.

  1. Love the idea of working between two tables – and how on earth do you stay so organized when you work? Thanks for sharing Libby – so nice to get a glimpse of Seth’s studio – I feel like it’s a little glimpse into his creative mind.
