What is your aesthetic? Organized | Tasty | Comfortable | Contemporary | Natural | Spacious

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? A place for everything and everything in its place. It’s important to me that when I walk into my studio each morning that it is the kind of space that makes me excited to sit down and start working.  On a clean wooden desk, whatever is spread out while I work looks good in the process. I work mostly to natural light thanks to the large windows. And I get immense pleasure from the organized drawers stocked with pens, inks, paper samples. My studio has pops of color here and there but still has a quiet, graceful feel to it.

Favorite part of your studio? My tackle-box of nibs. It’s my version of a candy store.

Where do you go for inspiration? Children’s books. A photo of myself at age 7 that I keep on my desk. Plants. World wide web.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? Harvest, my bookkeeping and invoicing software. I love everything about it. It makes invoicing fun.

I have to give a shout-out to my geeky device that helps me keep straight lines on opaque envelopes, the Phantom Liner.  Oh and one more must-have! My wireless Sennheiser headphones that I wear all day and keep on my head all the way across the office and at the sink while I’m washing nibs.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? A giant studio where I could explore larger format work, host events, work with friends, run around.

Anything else we should know? I used to have a radio show called “Plus Size Soul” featuring women vocalists from the first generation of jazz, blues and soul. I relive those days by posting a song to my blog, Paper Tastebuds, every Friday. The music is diverse and is always a song that I’ve been listening to that week in the studio.Via my blog, I also continually add ideas to a wedding gift guide if you’re looking for unique presents. Come visit and listen in on Fridays!
