Working alone all day in a small space, something most of us have in common. I have switched my studio like five times over the past ten years since moving to Baltimore. First I was in my spare bedroom, then I shared a space at a renovated mill, a dark and smelly basement space, then I moved to another rather featurless space, then I converted half my garage (see below), worked there for a few years, got antsy and moved out to another renovated mill space with a few of the same artists, over time found I used my home space more than my shared space so subletted my shared space.
It seems living and working in the same space is just the most productive for me, no in between time, no drive, though I often rode my bike. But I like to just roll out of bed and work or work whenever I want. When I renovated this garage I only took half as the other is full of junk. Now considering taking the whole garage, which requires building another outbuilding for all the junk, which is mostly tools, kids bikes, etc. My middle son has shown an interest in woodworking so I'm considering building a small shed/shop.
I want to get back into actual drawing and possibly printing or other tactile experiments and this is why I am thinking of expanding the space. So need room for a drawing table and some sort of work/cutting table. I had plumbing lines run out during my home reno project so I am set to hook up a sink and some sort of bathroom setup.
