Some artists like expansive white studios with perfect natural lighting. Perhaps I would too, but I have always felt most at home in small, eclectic spaces. Until the beginning of this year, my studio space (9′x15′) was a bit chaotic (to put it nicely!). In addition to feeling overwhelmed by clutter I was now sharing my studio with a lovely stray cat that we took in, Tinsel. It became very clear to me that the time had come to purge and reorganize.
