How big is your studio?

I am constantly astonished at the way so many artists can (or must) work in small areas and produce great work. I have a house to myself, not especially small, but all of my studio migrates to the other rooms in the house.
I even have a chair where I sit to read, it is at a window and in the sun so I am part of what goes on in my street (.I am reading "Theft" Peter Cary what a great writer,"Oscar and Lucinda" one of my favourite books.)
The problem is that when I want something I really, really have to search.
Today I am finishing the works for our "Very Stuff" group meeting tomorrow, the topics are "Tear" and "Fish". If you have been reading Jo's blog MYSTORY you will know all about the group and our exhibition coming up.

Now this is not the "Fish" I am showing tomorrow but it was inspired by a workshop where we machine embroidered over wire..I think the technique holds many possibilities.

This is one of the extensions to my studio....the living room

Hi Janette,
I just caught up with your blog, congratulations on the Korea exhibition. Your studio looks a bit like mine except that I have to share mine with four others including another creative.
