Again, I refer to artist Angi Sullins for a glorious, exuberant studio that excites me merely by looking at the pictures. Clearly we all don’t have the space and time to create such a over-the-top (she is a big fan of over-the-top and she does it very well, lovely) studio but try to spice up your work area with things that make you happy. Use bright colors, even if it’s just poster paper on the closet wall if that’s all the space you have. Put all your tools that you use the most, out in the open in containers so you can see them (i.e. colored pencils in a pencil cup, not hidden away in a drawer) and if a certain color excites you…paint your work chair that color or your desk or your lamp shade. Angi loves rich jewel tones and all kinds of textures and you can see this immediately in her photos. So don’t be afraid to make your little creative haven your own, on any scale.
