Studio Spaces #1

Studio Spaces #1

Hi, this is Scott Moore writing today, giving Sydney a break this week! I’ve decided to try out an idea I've had which is to give a tour of various peoples studios/work spaces. I find it inspiring to see where people work, how they setup their space, and how their space keeps them inspired. To kick it off I am starting with my home work space.

I am fascinated by how people work in space and how space or one's environment affects people's moods and behaviors. The color of the light,- for example, warm or cool light,- the arrangement of the furniture, the colors and decor of the space all affect one's mood, response and comfort in a space.

I am inspired to do my art by having a clean and organized space.  I am my most productive after I clean my space and have everything put where it belongs so that I can easily find and use my supplies and work efficiently.  I also find that clearing my space of clutter allows me to have clear thought and invites the flow of inspiration.

I like to have a u-shaped desk area. This allows me to access to my tools and supplies on both sides of me.  On the left of my desk, I have a couple lamps giving me ample light.

 I found these cubbies on Craigslist.  They are 18 inches deep for excellent art storage, including large paper, easels, books, canvases, and everything I need. 

 This blue set of drawers was once a shelf.  Over the years, I built small drawers to fit the unit so that I can store all of my little items, like pencils, sharpie, razors, etc.  Storage and organization is key to an efficient and usable art space.

Love it, Scott! You’re very organized – cool!
I’d be willing to show my work space, too — how would I do that on your blog?
