I am Finally able to share something I've been brainstorming for about 2 years--a new place The Hive Studio can call home! I kind of compare it to actually buying a house; you purchase the domain (the lot), & have it sit there, empty, for some time until you fully decide what you want to build upon it. Each page; each thought; each bit of artwork goes into making it come together, & you're hopeful it all works well & stands tall. There are still some "rooms" I'll be adding as time goes on, but for now, welcome to my new e-studio!
Over time, I've collected photos & mental snapshots of all of the charming, full-of-character brick & mortar shops from my travels to Boston & New York, & living in Philly. It's always been a dream of mine to one day own my own studio shop, so for my e-studio, it felt fitting to simply make that dream become a reality in a charming, little way. I hope you enjoy exploring my online brick & mortar space!
LindseyBee will still be the place where you'll receive the most up-to-date bits of information, & general inspiration, but thehivestud.io will be the main house.
I must say, this is starting to feel more like "me." For as long as I can remember, detailed pencil drawings have been a big source of inspiration for me, & my favorite art medium next to calligraphy. Here, I feel I could freely express that & start fresh with bringing it back full circle...back to my roots. There's something about that sketchy, messy, first thoughts of an idea that seem so authentic to me. I suppose it's symbolic to the very raw beginning of creating, perhaps. It's all so neat how the process of a thought-to a hand-to a piece of paper works together in creating. Don't you agree? Anywho, I hope you find the new site easy to use, & organized! A lot of time & heart & thought went into this, so I am happy it is finally live!
Welcome Home, The Hive Studio! It's about time! Now, time to sleep:)
