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!

Previous studio tours: Jeanne Oliver , Stephanie Lee, Sheila Atchley, and Diane Reeves.

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.
