When I first started my art career, my kitchen table was my studio then after that, I had many small studios/storages. Twenty-two years later, I got lucky and ended up with (Drumroll) not 1 but 2 ample spaced studios!
Hi friends, Paul and I have made an Art Studio Tour Video to share with you. In this video, I will walk you through my two studios and explain their purposes.
When I first started, our kitchen table was my studio, I was painting next to the stove. As I became a professional artist, my studio became more workable, but they were more like Studio/storage. That means limited space and some frustrations. Basically, I was painting next to the laundry basket.
Last year, Paul and I purchased a larger house so that we can house our studios at home. And, my patience has finally paid off! Now I have two great-sized studios! One for making Art and the other one is my Media Room where I do art coaching and videotaping like this one.
If you are an artist, you will find the studio tour useful, because I explained how I set up the studio to maximize efficiency and other tip bits.
And if you are an art lover, you will find the studio tour just as interesting because you get to see where I work. Come and see for yourself. I got Paul as my cameraman this time (so lucky). :)
BTW it is Raw Footage, so no editing and Paul and I had a lot of fun making the video for you!
Enjoy the video, everyone!
With Creative Joy,

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, love is definitely top on our minds. It doesn't have to be a day for couples only. It can be just be the day to say "I am love".
Hey friends, are you a romantic at heart? I am and I have painted a whole series dedicated to love, called the Romance Series.
I believe in romance so much, that I have collected 28 years of cards that Paul has ever written to me, and I am not kidding!
Why do I believe in romance? I believe in it because when you show someone that you are grateful for them, your gratitude and love will strengthen and improve your relationship. And I know we all desire to have relationships that continuously flourish and bring joy. And here are more reasons why Love Conquers All.
Love is Powerful
Love is Universal, and it never runs out. It is an emotional feeling that surpasses so many challenges. If you love with all your heart, you will manifest energy that is powerful and undeniable.
Love is a Confidence Booster
Love gives a person confidence and security because when a person is loved, she will always have guidance and protection.
Unconditional love can make a difference in someone's life. So give out love from your heart, and you will see someone blossom into the most magnificent being.
Love yourself unconditionally, and you will gain self-acceptance. And the harmful comparison of others will end you will also regain your value and be proud of who you are.
Let's Celebrate Love
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! Plan a special day and spoil your loved ones because LOVE is worth celebrating.
With Creative Joy,
Do you have someone in your life that makes everything better for you, the person that makes you feel limitless, and that everything is possible?
A Tribute to my Best Friend, Paul, the inspiration behind my Romance Series Artwork.
Today, I would like to give tribute to my husband and business partner, Paul. Most of you met me from our Art Rush Gallery. But only some of you had the pleasure to meet Paul.
When you visit our gallery, I am the front person who greets you and serves you, but what you do not see is the person in charge of everything else that happens in the back.
The person that operates the back end of the gallery is Paul. He works hard in the back so that everything runs smoothly in the front. Paul never asks for recognition, and in my eye, he is the backbone of the business.
Our Mighty Little Business is Small by Design and Here are our Whys:
Since 2001, the two of us have been operating our Art and Jewelry business together. Our mighty little business is small by design.
Paul and I keep our business small because we believe in giving you authentic hand-made products with the best service that we can offer. Our mission is to keep you happy by providing well made products, professional service with a personal touch. And our reputation and reviews testify to our mission.
I may be the creator of the art and the stories that go along with them. But I wouldn't be here without my Paul.
Paul plays a vital role in our life and business. He is the glue that keeps things going and the anchor that solidifies our livelihood.
Paul is the Glue and the Anchor of our Business.
While you may not see Paul in the gallery, he is busy designing and making jewelry in the back studio. Paul also patiently photographs my artwork and makes them into prints and art gifts, such as T-shirts, tote bags, journals set up, magnets, and purse mirrors. Wait before you applaud! Paul is also our bookkeeper, wildlife photographer, Web designer, and maintenance guy!
In my eyes, Paul is my hero, always giving us his best.
Last but not least, Paul is also the inspiration behind my Romance Series paintings. Well, I can't help it when someone inspires my life so much, I got to paint about it. :)
I am so fortunate to have Paul in my corner, and his high standard and dedication are unmatchable in business and life.
So friends, who is that person that lights up your life and makes you feel limitless?
With Creative Joy,
TingPaul is the Glue and the Anchor of our Business.
These are the paintings that are inspired by Paul.....
