As a creative, one of my favorite things in the world is to step into the creative space of another. I love when an artist shares their space, how they use it, a peek into their favorite tools and even what they are currently working on. I hope you will join me for the brand new An Artist Studio series! Each month a different artist will welcome us into their space!
I hope it will encourage you to cherish your own creating space. I started on the kitchen table, built our business in an unfinished basement, filmed our first courses in a transformed dinning room, create now in a big space and know that I will find a creative space no matter where we go next. The space you have is perfect if you are showing up and creating in it!
This month we have been welcomed into the studio of Aimee Irel Bishop.
I am a gatherer. A creative. A lover. A beauty seeker. I believe in the healing power of using my hands and my heart to create a beautiful life led by love. Art making is healing, grounding and expanding. It is a way to find the truth. It has awakened my gifts it has brought me back to myself.
A big part of my process is in the collecting. I love finding forgotten bits of fabrics and papers and adding layers of my own marks with paints, ink, tea, coffee and graphite. My favorite tool is a plain old #2 pencil. Especially ones I find forgotten but still full of their last users energy.
My intuition is my greatest teacher and constant muse. Emotions play a huge part in my art, giving me insight and release. Helping me expand my understanding of myself and the world around me. I’m a huge nature lover and you can find me on my best days tending to my high country garden or walking in the woods.
