A Look Inside Artist’s Studios

Seeing images of artist’s studios always leaves me feeling energized and inspired. I’m still dreaming of my own studio space – something that my 1 bedroom, 650 sq ft apartment will not quite accommodate! I envision concrete floors to get all dirtied and big windowed garage doors I can open on cool days… a proper place to do welding, ceramics, wood restoration and just about anything else that perks my curiosity. Oh, it will come! And until then, I share a bit of daydreaming on the subject with some images of artist’s studios both known and unknown below!


Porthmeor artists’ studios in St Ives – the oldest artist complex of it’s kind in Britain – dates back to the early 1800’s.

I cannot find the name of this artist, but their wonderfully colorful and repurposed art studio resides in New Zealand.


Studio of American landscape painter and author, Eric Sloane.


Studio/workshop of welding sculptor Alan Ross


Awesome ceramics studio at University of Texas of the Permian Basin. Would love to play here!

Do you have a fabulous inspiring art studio to share?? One filled to the brim with brushes and paint, clay and metal, odds and ends, doodads and thingamajigs galore? Please shoot me an email at sarahtreanor[at]gmail[dot]com to share some images of your inspiring space! I would love to gather up enough studios from everyone who reads here to do a blog post!

  1. Great subject…I hope you get a good response as the next post would be as interesting as this one was. My studio space is a corner in my office. My colored pencis don’t take up much space.

  2. I hope you get your studio someday! I feel you on the one room apartment thing. Many dreams are too big for a one room apartment, lol!

    I currently live in a 350 sq. ft. one-bedroom apartment. I had to downsize from a 980 sq. ft. space, where I had a whole room of 150 sq. ft. as a studio. Where there is a will, there is a way. I decided to sacrifice dining space for work space. The back of my kitchen, where a table and chairs should go, contains my easel, and work table. I eat off a snack tray in my tiny living room. Dreams are flexible. You can fit them in anywhere, if you are determined.
