Having a Dedicated Studio Space

Having a Dedicated Studio Space

Since I got back from my brief trip to Boulder at the end of April I have been working everyday in my studio. I cannot emphasize enough how amazing it is to have a dedicated space to explore my creative passions day and night. Not only are all my art supplies in the same room (a relatively simple concept but mindblowing nonetheless) but I can leave my studio as it is and come back hours or days later without anyone complaining about the mess (The Freedom!).

I am making huge leaps in my own visual language and I am working towards a group exhibition in June. There has been a lot of pressure, some of it from my own perceptions of my progress, to get involved in the gallery scene of Chicago, but I’m not sure what I would do with that involvement. A lot of what i’m working on right now still feels pretty tentative. The elevator speech about myself and my art is still in shambles. Until I get a more solid portfolio of work I think locking myself away in my studio for days on end is exactly what I should be doing with my life right now.

This stuff doesn’t just happen overnight!
