my studio on the move
Artisan studios run the gamut from formal to informal, and truly come in every shape and size. That's part of what makes them so very interesting to peek into.
Ontario-based painter Jane Champagne once said "... a beautiful new studio, with everything possible an artist needs... is intimidating. I'm used to cramped spaces, like cars and kitchens... just looking at the new studio easel makes me want to paint – and run away."
Another painter, Shirley Erskine was quote as saying "I have done some really good work under the worst circumstances and some pretty awful stuff in a well organized, pristine studio."
Perhaps the place is less important than the imagination, the energy and the idea?
Today we have another peek into an Artisans Gallery team member's studio - that of Linda Phine from PaperPhine. Thank you, Linda!

According to Linda, "Since my 'studio' tends to be on the move a lot (there is a studio - but nobody is allowed to walk in there .... too dangerous for people who don't know their way around the boxes, bobbins, cones, etc!) any table can turn into a worktable for me a any time. Only need some yarns, hooks and small tidbits..."
