Art Studio - 2 rooms

The wall on the left side of the stash/design room. Bolt ends of fabrics lean against the wall. My "Imagine" wall is a great source of inspiration. Cards that friends have sent, magazine cut-outs, postcards, ideas for future art quilts. The two rolling Iris Mini Chests are storing all of my fused fabric scraps by color.
My design table, that is just the right height, because bed risers are under the legs. The 3-tiered wire baskets hold zippers, fabrics and notions for my abstract work. A beautiful roll on Misty Fuse graces the right side. I still think it needs one of those paper dispensers hanging from the bottom of the shelves, so I can roll it out easily.
The stash and design room. These shelves were originally made for a dentist office, so they are shallow and perfect for fat quarters. Commercial cottons on the left, specialty in the middle and batiks on the right. And yes, that is a vintage Girl Scout Uniform from the 50's.
The other side of my office, where the computer is and more book shelves.
This is my office, where I store all of my art books. Lime green, red, blue and white binders to help me stay organized - one for each group that I am in, quilt show entries, original artwork, curated shows, etc. Everything is in one place. That's a life-size Juliette Low that I designed for the Girl Scout Council of Orange County in 2003. She is painted with diluted acrylic paint and she was used to greet people as they came to an event called "Urban Adventure."

  1. Great studio and so close to home. That makes it much easier to work, even if it's for a short time.
