After a move to the southwest my studio is the smallest I’ve ever had. I’ve needed to figure storage as a priority! My work is detail oriented so, the studio has to be detail oriented for me to store and work, although it doesn’t look like it in this picture! While I work I have a book on tape going in the background, I miss most of the content, but it’s drone is a good sound blocker.

My studio has been the room over the garage. I have worked there for 25 years with my paints spilling over a table tucked under the knee walls. When I work on large scale drawings, anything larger than my 48″ x 72” drawing board, I have to roll part of it up or work on the floor. To get a proper look at the whole piece I roll it out on my driveway and then take the stairs two at a time to look out the studio window before it rains, or the neighbor’s dogs gallop up the driveway to say hello. I have loved and hated the chaos and the clutter of that space. But now I am getting a new space: a purpose-built studio with north facing skylights, a fourteen-foot ceiling and a big beautiful flat wall where I can draw or paint at any scale! It is as thrilling to me as a brand new untouched canvas; light, air, space, and all unsullied possibility.

I’m creating in my studio, The Colorful Critter, with my friend. We wear white clothing so we can paint ourselves into our work. I frequently use this space as a performance zone and record the results of my dancing artistic expression. I checked my crocs at the door and delved into my free to splatter paint creative space. The outside of this building is white, well it was, every time I paint I leave an impression of what was on my hands and body.
Elizabeth Awalt, Swan’s Island, Maine
In my studio on Swans Island, Maine, I make paintings and constructions that refer to the sea outside my door. I collect seaweeds and print and use them as a template to paint with starting on the floor and then develop them further on the wall. I collect lobster trap detritus, seal bones, fishing rope and other objects that wash up on the shore and construct objects with them. The island is a rich resource for my work and a place where I feel free to play and experiment. It’s been my muse for over 30 years.
