art supplies

Shelves filled with opportunities

I recently wrote a post about my thoughts about decluttering, ephemera, and collections. If you visit the studio, you’ll be greeted by two parrots, full bookshelves, and a wide variety of supplies. This studio is not a blank-slate…it is a bower bird’s eclectic space meant to stimulate curiosity and creativity (which seems appropriate, since these birds are described as being “bright as crayons”).

What collections are essential to your creative practice?
