Upcoming book: A Place to Paint: The Value of a Studio

Why is it important to make a space for your art studio? On a gut level, I feel one of the most important reasons to have a specific place to do your art is that it validates the importance of your calling as artist. It tells the universe (and yourself) that creating art is of primary importance to you, that you are committed to it. The force of one’s commitment is a powerful vibration that sets exciting events in motion. The universe responds by sending you the time, talent and mentors to live your dream. As author and training guru, James Womack, Ph.D., said,

“Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the “right stuff” to turn our dreams into reality.”

On a more basic level, having a studio of your own provides:

  • A quiet place to concentrate
  • Greater organization and efficiency
  • More privacy & frees up inhibitions
  • Increased production
  • A happy place to call your own
