Lindsay Pichaske Studio Tour

Maryland Hall Artist-in-Residence Lindsay Pichaske takes you on a tour of her studio.

I have a wall of tools and a wall of inspirational images. These tools are ones I use frequently, and I love having them out and visible, do I know where everything is. The images are of other artists' work, reference animal images, and images of interesting objects and textures that I've photographed.

I usually begin a piece by doing a quick, large scale drawing. These are examples of some previous pieces.

I keep a collection of natural found objects in my windowsill. These are my 'natural history museum' in the studio. They are objects I use as reference, and as textural inspiration in my work.

I also keep texture test tiles around my studio for reference for specific materials. Here I have an example of pinecone 'petals'.

I typically start each piece by making a quick maquette (small model). This quick study helps me work out the pose, gesture and proportions before starting on the larger piece.
