Organized Chaos

Not to be outdone (or outshamed,) here's what my work space looks like lately. And unfortunately not much has moved or changed in months (having a baby does that.) I'll get back to it someday! It really is organized chaos. Let me let you in on a little secret. When you see pictures on TV or in magazines of artists' work spaces and they're all painstakingly organized and tidy, don't be fooled. That's not real. They worked their butts off to create the illusion of perfection for one tiny, solitary moment in time. You can bet that the reality looks much different, or else they're not really accomplishing anything art-wise. THIS, my friends, THIS is the real nitty-gritty, true life, day-in-day-out look of an artist's space. Just tellin' it like it is, folks.


  1. I hear someone say once that the nice neat workspaces are those of crafters. The cluttered messy ones are of artists. hmmmmmm

  2. umm...I'm feeling pressure. not sure what I should post. should I post a picture of my messy room?!?!

  3. Are we talking dirty undies, etc? How about some pics from your bat cruise!
