Recently I had the opportunity to visit the amazing studio of one of my more favorite artists, Elizabeth Perkins. As soon I got my sneaky little foot in the door I fell in love with her space. It is so inviting and cozy. Her workspace to die for, in a technical utilitarian sort of way. Also she has such a collection of colorful and meaningful objects surrounding the space, I could have stayed and played all day.
Here are some delicious images of her work, materials, and shrine.
