What do you enjoy most about working here? I enjoy the feeling I have when I am in the space – it feels happy, inspiring and always calling out for me to come inside and start creating.
How would you improve your space if you could? I’d add directional lighting to the walls, then I would build a countertop around the room for more working space, gluing area, and a drying station for finished work. I’d also install a wet sink and convert the current closet to shelving and make it a supply storage area so I could use all the rest of my tabletop space for just work and not supplies. I envision box-like shelving units across one of the small walls that also houses art books, my tiny flat screen monitor so I can watch instructional videos and an area for my iPod and speakers so I can listen to music while creating.
