You're an artist. What's in your studio?

YOU are an ARTIST. What's in your studio? What's in your head? Do the supplies and objects surrounding you inspire you? I feature what inspires me in an earlier post: There is inspiration everywhere. One can be inspired, however, but the studio has to have the tools for you to bring that inspiration from brain to paper, canvas, clay, jewelry, mosaic tile, or simple sketch.

Now that I am settled into our new home, I love being in my studio almost every day. If you are considering adding items to your home as a crafter or hobby, maker, or painter here are my suggestions. I post those that I use frequently in my business, but I include supplies that others have told me that they had used, and which they gave me assurance that the purchase was a good decision.

Many artists today are using digital art as their process so I will start with some devices, some of which I use even though the bulk of my artwork is traditional, ie, painting and drawing with brushes or pen. If you are younger than me (lucky you) you might choose an apple pen over paper or canvas. (Don't worry will cover the traditional items for you in this post).
