I bought this book because I'm designing an expanded studio space for painting and collage, but found it disappointing. I cringed at some of the crafts and art featured in the book; a lot of it is cutesy, and just not to my taste. The studios also seem overdecorated, but again, that's just my personal taste. I like a studio space that's more modern and functional, with lots of clear space, so most of the studios featured in the book seem cluttered and "frilly" to me. Other reviews here attest to the fact that many people love them, so just take this as a warning if you prefer a modern, functional look. In that case, I recommend Dream Sewing Spaces, by Lynette Ranney Black (with lots of ideas for any art or craft medium), as well as Setting Up Shop, by Sandor Nagyszalanczy. I found both these books inspiring and practical.

Who would have thought that "visiting" an artist's studio could be so stimulating? Where Women Create provides a rare glimpse into the creative spaces of 26 artists, including such notables as Anna Corba, Jill Schwartz, Debbee Thibault, Suze Weinberg, and Kitty Bartholomew.

Step into the working world of Wendy Addison, whose light-filled studio is like an upscale boutique full of vintage treasures; or enter Susan Alexander's creative, delightfully messy environment of antique cabinets and tabletops covered with fabrics, fibers, works-in-progress, and other treats. Kitty Bartholomew's studio is a warm, home-like environment; while Cheri Ellis works in a space with so much color, it fairly vibrates with energy.

In this beautifully photographed book, you'll meet the artists, see their studios, and dream of making your own creative space-come-true.

I enjoyed this book because it encites me to find or carve out my own creative space. While I agree with the other reviewer;(Many of the artist's did not seem to own a computer I only noticed one), I have to state that my senses were awakened with the possibility of what kind of work space can be created. That alone was enough for me to enjoy this book. Not to mention the colors these women choose for their areas are fabulous.

So if you can get past the fact that this looks like it came straight out of Mary Englebright's Home Companion (I think that's the name of the magazine), you should enjoy this book.

This book is so unique. It's not an organizational book, it's in inspirational book. Don't expect any tips on how to store fabric or organize ribbon, this book is so much more than that. Each artist shares a little info on their studio as well as what inspires them to create. You'll also find favorite quotes and tips from the artists throughout the book. Each woman featured uses a different medium to create. Some create clothing, others rubber stamp, some do collage, etc... but they all share the same passion for creating art. You can't help but to feel inspired to create after reading this book!

I love visiting Art & Craft studios, especially because I have a small one and I always hope to find new ideas to make more space for my supplies. This book is interesting for that, with very beautiful photos and pleasant to read, nice colors, it gives the will to work more and in a nice and clean work space. We just guess all these nice studios have been well cleaned and prepared for the photos. I would have loved to see these same spaces in a true mess, as they used to be when the artists are working in them... But anyway, I think this book deserve to be seen and read. It's a book we can't forget.

This is an agreeable book, but I found Organizing Your Craft Space by the same author much better and more useful. Much material is duplicated - you really don't need both books.

This lovely book is filled with juicy photos that will make you want to jump up and carve yourself your own artistic niche. Many different artists working in various mediums invite you into their aesthetic havens, leaving you feel like you just went on the ultimate art tour and made new friends. This is a book I keep handy to get the creative mojo going.

I just loved looking in to the working spaces of the creative and talented women in the book. There are plenty of pictures to inspire you to make your own creative place. I only wish the book included a resource list of where to buy some of the storage containers etc... that were pictured. Some of them were so neat!
