Nice weather is right around the corner here in Brooklyn and I've been spring cleaning and reorganizing our apartment like a maniac. It feels so good to get ready for another summer in the city, and now that things are in place I'm going to start posting more updates about my life and process as a young artist. I thought I'd start by giving you a look into my home studio, so you'll learn a bit about Angel and I and the place where most of our creative work gets done.
My two photo kits are always beside the front door, one for city and one for nature. I'm constantly optimizing their contents and organization so that I can photograph in challenging situations.
This is our shared desk/workspace. My drawers on the left are filled with jewelry making tools and thousands of beads. Angel's drawers on the right are filled with bike building tools.
Lex, my darling cat, is the star of our apartment. You might notice she tried to slip into almost every shot, which will likely continue to happen.
The view from my desk is of my favorite lookout in Waterton Lakes National Park. I used to watch the stars there a lot, and still do now even from far away.
This is my little bunny Gir (Greater intelligence rabbit). She's really excited that it's spring, and can't figure out why no man bunnies have stopped by our fourth floor walk up yet.
So many things fit in our small space because we built this loft bed. It holds our bikes, speakers, hammock and shelves. Plus there's a rabbit tunnel underneath that is pretty adorable to watch.
We have a pretty simple and outdated kitchen, but I've seen the same cabinets in so many apartments here I'm beginning to wonder if it's a NY thing. Lot's of cooking and baking magic happens in it despite the look.
All floor space is valuable here, so Angel built this little cave for Gir in the cupboard beside the stove.
We try to keep to a minimalist life by only owning what we need and use, but a few little trinkets have found their way into our hearts. The wind up robot was the thing that started this whole collection.
Well that's it, our 250 square foot apartment/office/studio/zoo. We can create anything we want here. As long as it will fit on the floor space.
Tomorrow I'm excited to share a new project I've been working on for the last few months. Tell me your reaction to our place in the comments, and if you know someone who would enjoy this share it with them.
Have a great day,
