Friday Studio Links!

The Studio of Wendy Watson

 

 



Today we've got a tour of the summer studio of award winning, third-generation author and artist Wendy Watson. Wendy has written and illustrated twenty-one children's books, and illustrated more than sixty children's books for other authors! Just a few of her books include, The Cats in Krasinski Square and Spuds both written by Karen Hess, and The Family Bedtime Treasury: Tales for Sleepy Times and Sweet Dreams and Bedtime Bunnies, both written by Wendy. And yes! I did say summer studio. Wendy is also is lucky enough to divide her time between two places, Arizona and Massachusetts.

 

And what studio wouldn't be complete with out a favorite chair and someone to keep you company.

Wendy's work for BEDTIME BUNNIES was included in the 2011 Society of Illustrators annual "Original Art" exhibit. You can read more about Wendy in this great interview. And be sure to follow these links and head over to Wendy's blog to see even more photos of her summer studio. Both before and after being cleaning up!

Oh, so dreamy. Complete with a fluffy cat... Wendy had fashioned a little heaven.

I am totally jealous! Looking forward to a separate art studio of my own some day!

Glad you're stopping by to have a look. Thanks for the comments! There's lots more to come. If I can ever get mine cleaned up I would love to post it too. Caitlin, we built a separate studio in the backyard. All by ourselves! Hope to show it and other artist-built studios
in the future.
