phm studio spaces: how now design

Artist Name: Abbey Hendrickson

City: Buffalo, New York

Where in your home/apartment is your studio located?

I’m an MFA candidate so these images are from my studio at school.

What equipment/tools do you use?

I use the basic stuff like pencils, gouache, and acrylic paint; but recently I’ve been using a lot of more banal materials like puff paint, found paper, and wood grain contact paper.


Do you have an inspiration board, and can you tell us what is inspiring you now?

I have a few boards scattered around my studio. I’m constantly looking at design blogs and art books, but I also like to walk around our neighborhood and take photos of buildings. Architecture and domesticity are things I think about a lot.

How do you create best (e.g. do you listen to music while you create and if so what?)

I think people would be surprised to know that I create best when I‘m listening to really bad rap. Old Dirty, 50 cent, and Eminem are in my queue right now.

List (3) of your favorite artists:

Margaret Kilgallen: Margaret Kilgallen
Diana Cooper: Diana Cooper
Jim Houser: Jim Houser

If yours isn't, what would be your perfect studio?

My perfect studio would be one without cinder block walls! Ideally it would be filled with natural light, but also have tons of wall space and storage. I’m afraid of how large my drawings would get if I had a bigger space though.

Thanks Abbey!
