The Artist and Her Studio #art

Every artist needs a place to work. I just recently moved into the space below, 981 square feet in the East Village in San Diego. I’m on the second floor over an architecture school. I can’t tell you how exciting and terrifying this move was and is. For the first time in my artistic life I have ample space to work, show and store my paintings.

Space cost money and quality space costs even more. So this is a huge leap for me…out on my own, trying to make it all work. “Live the dream” as they say. I had no idea how hard it is to live the dream, but it’s my dream and I can’t live any other.

      • Glad you have had such good success since your move. I kind of hit a wall after my move. I’m back to work but lack some sort of umph I had before. It could just be “trying to become a professional artist” fatigue. So I’m trying to give myself some rest and stop marketing for a while and just follow the muse.

      • Yes thats a hard huddle to get over sometimes I find it best at least for me to paint for fun, wake at 2am and out in some music and simply enjoy the paint
