When I became a resident artist at The Banana Factory, (an arts & education center in Bethlehem, PA) I was asked what my ultimate studio would look like. My response was something along the lines of, "A great big studio with a view." This is that space. As there are a very limited number of open studios, it is common for artists to take whatever studio is open and then move once a more suitable space becomes available.
I wanted a space with a view - but not one that is distracting. I can see loads of sky and clouds with this northern exposure and it makes me very happy.
The image above is from when I first moved in and was trying to decide where everything should go.
I wanted to set it up in a way that would be very open and inviting. The larger space will allow me to comfortably do group lessons and mini-workshops - stay tuned for more details on that. (Fearless Art Warrior classes coming soon!)
As with my previous studio, I paid close attention to the rules of Feng Shui to set up a comfortable energetic flow within the space. (I use this book: Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life: How to Use Feng Shui to Get Love, Money, Respect, and Happiness)
The slideshow above shows me moving in and setting up studio #250
The video above shows the last walk-through I did in studio #249.
My studio hours vary, but when I am there working during building hours, you are welcome to visit. Want to schedule a visit? I will do my best to accommodate - contact me: stephanie at biffybeans dot com.
