How beautiful is her space?
Tell us about yourself as a creative.
Hi! I’m Jennifer Young, lifestyle photographer and blogger over at I ART U. Taking photos and blogging fills up most of my time these days.
Describe your creative journey.
I have always been the creative type but my career as a photographer started within the last couple of years. I studied music my entire life (got my Masters in Clarinet Performance!) but a recent move to the central coast (San Luis Obispo, CA) helped me transition into and pursue photography. I’ve always wanted to be photographer!
Share a little bit about your space.
Let’s be honest, my workspace doesn’t always look this neat, but I thought I’d tidy it up a bit for all of you! I work best in a clean and uncluttered space filled with things I love. My husband built all of the shelving units, which is amazing to not only store and organize my many books, magazines, and photos, but to display current things that inspire me. I love the workstation below the main shelving unit, which was built for working on projects or to use as a laptop station. My desk was a $5 thrift store find—sanded and refinished by my husband as well. He’s amazing!
What’s your favorite thing about your space?
My favorite thing about my space is that it changes so frequently–from the vignettes and books, to the images displayed, to the light that changes from season to season.
What’s one thing you think every creative needs in their space?
I think it’s important to have something in your space that represents growth and change. For me, it’s natural light and plants.
