Artists studios vary wildly in size, clutter, layout, location and so on. They are such an individual space that creates itself around the artist over a period of time. As each artist finds their path, their materials and tools of trade evolve around them and speaks volumes about their artistic style.

Some have the luxury to afford large spaces, quaint artsy lofts or warehouses. Others are relegated to a corner of the garage or a desk top in a home office. There are no rules as to mess or tidy. To each their own. To each their art.

Probably the differentiating aspects I do notice in an artist studio is the tell-tale signs of an artist who works on whimsy and physical energy which creates their art, compared to artists who work in a planned methodical program and have studios which appear somewhat more orderly.

One thing all artists have in common, is inspirational collections.

Be it creative clippings, stuffed animals, huge windows, rows of books and samplers .. there is never a shortage of personal inspiration in the artists work zone. Whilst some prefer to keep a white neutral palette around them so their work is untainted, others seem to find their art amongst the clutter that surrounds it.

Please, enjoy this collection of artist studios below. I have included a couple of very famous artists, see if you can spot them …
