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.

This month we have been welcomed into the studio of Diane Reeves.







Let’s start with my guilty pleasures: I love books about decorating (my husband would say I like decorating with books about decorating), I basically collect interior design magazines, and I swoon over beautifully written and illustrated children’s books.  I find myself most inspired by architecture both grand and modest, nature both soft and severe (I have a rock and stick collection I think of as little divine sculptures), and the places I’ve lived for the stories they hold.  Someone said once that “Beauty is my food” and that could be my mantra.

I have five children, from 18 years old to 3 year old, and I’m married to a charming and creative entrepreneur and writer (who wrote the “charming” and “creative” part of that sentence and insists on the Oxford Comma).

I grew up mostly in Texas, where I learned to do things my own way, spent a few years in St. Louis, a city I thank for teaching me to love cities, and with my family I currently live in Pueblo, CO where I love the seasons and I’m finding I love the high-desert.

I’m an ISFP (I know, so 90’s), but on my list is to discover my enneagram, so I can get caught up with the 2000’s.  I’m a painter and and I recently finished an interior design program (recognizing now I shouldn’t have changed my major from Interior Design in college).”  I think grocery shopping must be the worst thing ever, not counting moving cross-country or putting the groceries away.  I hope, maybe more than anything else, to travel more in the future.
