Artist Studio: A Space for Creation


Welcome to my studio! In French, the word artists use for artist studio is"Atelier." It's a sacred space for creation. In the fashion world, a designer might have an atelier with number of assistants or apprentices who work together to create apparel, jewelry, or accessories. For writers, the process is usually more solitary. Writing Beauty, however, opened my life. I started shoemaking to better understand Amy, the protagonist, a woman who has a fondness for shoes and boots and eventually goes into the fashion industry. I discovered new passions: shoemaking and a deeper understanding of couture. I'll share some of my thoughts writing, shoemaking, and interview Beauty insiders about as well. Exploring one’s creativity can open a door to joy and happiness. I know it has for me.
