workroom......................

As quite a secretive person I battle with hiding away and also knowing the importance of revealing myself and getting my work seen.
Lately Ive been asked to show images of my little workroom.
So here are some snaps,usually its quite tidy...............usually its a mess.
















































I think that's about as revealing I could go!
The only things missing are cats falling about everywhere grooming and maybe a glass of red in the evenings on my desk.
I hid away for years didn't give interviews or tell anything about myself.
Where did it get me ..........not very far.
Get yourself out there tell people you exist,own your work,be proud.
If you want to make a living making things which I was so desperate to do you can't do it with the curtains closed
Get a blog,facebook ,etsy shop approach shops.
You never know whats around the corner and you know what...........you might actually enjoy it.

  4. It's always interesting to see other people's workspaces.

    So true if you want to make a living out of your craft, you've got to blow your trumpet a little till others cotton on to the tune.........

  6. Great to see your workspace (realistic balance between organization and artistic messiness!)

  8. Damn right, you have to put yourself out there, even if overcome with shyness - your studio is a gorgeous treasure trove and I've loved looking at the pictures - and am hankering after your craft stash!
