Today we see inside Tiel's studio space and get a glimpse of what she surrounds herself with while working. Be sure to check out Tiel's Etsy and Big Cartel stores to see some of the lovely works created in this space. - Jenny x

Recently we moved houses so right now I paint and draw in our main bedroom. It’s a little odd, but you see our bedroom is oddly large in size. When I first moved out of home and shared accommodation, I lived in flats that were about the same size.

Our intentions are to build a wall and divide the room, rip up the carpet, polish the concrete and remove the old verticals.

I have a beautiful view over the Brisbane River. Poinciana, Illawarra Flame and Jacaranda trees are in bloom right now so all around me I see orange, green and purple bursts throughout the landscape.

Each week canvases and sheets of paper spread out a little further and works in progress lean against any available wall. I have a very laid back and understanding husband. I look forward to having better storage and a space that people can visit, one that is separate to the home. I will be able to work better by not seeing washing baskets in the corner of the room or looking at house mess. But for now I am happy.
