1. Selene Paschoal

I know I am lucky in many ways because I have two studios: one at home and one in the Simpsonville Arts Center. They are both large with plenty of space for me to have what I need to create my art pieces. Dividing the week between the two places can be challenging because I have to carry certain items back and forth. My dream studio would be to have everything in the SAC. It’s large and sunny and people can chat with me.
2. Janien Prummel
Janien Prummel is a mixed-media artist, living in Antwerp (Belgium), who loves to make collages that bring different pieces together in a new balance. Janien works with paper and fabric that show traces of time.
I love my home and the atmosphere of my current studio. But my ideal studio looks different. First of all, the studio is in nature where I have a view of old trees—opening doors so that I can easily step outside and hear the wind, and the birds and smell nature. It is also definitely bigger than my current studio. It’s higher and more spacious so I can work bigger.
3. Bridgette Meinhold
Bridgette Meinhold is a conceptual artist based in Park City, UT where she is known for her atmospheric, foggy encaustic landscape paintings. Nature is the starting point for all of Meinhold’s work and her inspiration comes from watching the weather, walking in forests, and mindful observation of our environment. Bridgette sharing her dream studio-
While my shipping container studio in an aspen grove is a dream, it is a pretty compact space of 160 square feet. Considering I paint pretty large, it makes for some challenging storage and painting configurations. My dream studio is actually in the desert of Southern Utah though with a view of red rock formations, plenty of big island tables to work on, leave projects unfinished perhaps, with a comfy couch for naps, reading, and dreaming, and a small kitchen in which I can conduct homemade ink experiments and perform alchemy, or maybe bake some cookies while painting. Big white walls, windows up high that only have views of the sky and the clouds, and a small garden courtyard just outside to enjoy the birds, bees, and flowers.
4. Anastasia Parmson
In a studio conversation with the artist, Anastasia Parmson whose black-and-white artwork will sweep you away. Anastasia creates drawing installations of domestic interiors that are full of minute details, autobiographical and pop culture references, and sometimes obscure inside jokes. All of those details outline glimpses into who she is.
My dream studio would look a lot like CJ Hendry’s studio in Green Point: a large industrial space with indirect light or perhaps big windows on one side. It would have dedicated sections for woodwork and dusty jobs, a spray painting section, a clean drawing section for those pristine white pieces, and an office space with an adjustable desk. There would be a well-lit spot for photographing all the works and a small display area to show finished works to visitors. My dream studio would also have a small voice recording room for podcasting and of course, a nice kitchenette with a proper coffee machine, all the snacks, and a fridge fully stocked with sparkling water.
5. Sarah Mecca Abdourahman
