“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.” -Kalu Ndukwe Kalu
I just reorganized my studio, so I thought I’d give you a little tour.
The main thing I keep in mind whenever I reorganize my studio and art supplies is ease.
I know I hate to clean up, but in order to find anything, I have to stay organized and make it easy for myself.
So while everything always has its place, it is usually in its own dish, cup, drawer or bin and I make sure everything is very clearly labeled or defined.
I LOVE my lighting and camera setup.
When I first started recording my videos, I used a little web cam attached to a mic stand and laptop. This camera is still attached to a mic stand as they’re inexpensive and what my husband, IT guru, sound technician and musician, Brian Knapp, always has around.

I also purchased a lovely ikea table (Norden Klaptafel/Gateleg Table) that folds down on both sides. I haven’t filed the drawers yet, but they seem perfect for something.
Right now, I’ve filled all of the shelves and drawers in the built-in closet, labeling them with blue tape and sharpie (otherwise I can never find anything).
Of course, my favorite place to paint, write ad read is always outside on our backyard patio.
So I still always keep my little sketchbook and a few of my favorite art supplies (along with a cup filled with water and ready with brushes), so I can always run into the backyard and paint.

A little side note… I fell for Brian the first time I heard him sing during a high school performance of Guys & Dolls. Instant heart-swoon.
Have a wonderful weekend! xo
