I've written in the past about how a formal studio practice didn't work for me but I've always loved having a dedicated space for creative work, so I decided to give a home studio a try. Why: less financial commitment; easier access; and more privacy. (I sing when I paint. Loudly.)
When I discovered this dingy dark concrete room in the basement, I immediately saw it... a studio!
A curious soul recently asked: What is your biggest piece of advice for someone torn between getting a degree or teaching themselves art?
What a big, beautiful question -- one I've been asking since the beginning, as well. Although I certainly have an opinion, I turned to a group of AMAZING artists, some self-taught, some traditionally educated, some both, for advice.
