messy studio space


This weekend I turned my attention to an ongoing project of mine called the Fair Maid. It is 150 pages of pasty collage goodness. A collaged story—a huge ass book. I finished the last 8 pages and worked in a frenzy till I was DONE!!! When I am really into the artwork, everything around me is ignored. That includes the space around me.

It gets so bad when I am really working. when I get up for a drink or a break, glued bits of paper attach themselves to the soles of my bare feet and I track them all over the house. Yesterday, I found a piece of collage paper in the shower!

Thanks so much for sharing these studio photographs, Julie. It's a comfort to know that my mother will no longer be ashamed of MY WORKSPACE alone! :D
