I love to see artists and their studios. Heck, I love to see everyone's house, office, wherever they do their thing. It's just interesting to see someone else's environment. But when it comes to being an artist on social media, I think it could be a stressful thing if are in the mindset of thinking you need a studio to be an artist. Being an artist is about having a passion, not about having 4 walls. Think about it, prisoners in small cells have been known to create beautiful works of art in their cells with just ballpoint pens. Cancer patients make art while they are hooked up to IV machines. Emo teenagers make art in notebooks in uncomfortable chairs attached to desks. When you have the desire, it does not matter where you are. The studio does not make an artist. An artist just fill a studio with art.
If you really want the studio feels, you just need a corner to call your own. Our mom was an artist. She loved to paint. When she had to downsize, she argued that she could not make her art in such a small space. Karen and I would remind her how I make art in a closet! She hated giving up her art room and we kept encouraging her to make art at her kitchen table. As much as she wanted to be angry about downsizing, it took her all of two weeks to start painting in her new space. Her passion to create took over and all was well.
The size of the space where you create does not define or determine how successful you are or your value. I live and work in a 1300 square foot house and have created large works for hotels I could never afford to stay in. Still, if you asked me if I want a studio or an indoor laundry room, guess which one I would choose...the laundry room! Go ahead and share your art corner and don't worry if it looks like anyone else's space. It's fun to see what everyone has in their version of a studio and how they define it for themselves.
