Art Holes: Brie Moreno

Art holes is a column where artists diagram their work spaces. This issue, artist Brie Moreno gives us a look.

I currently work between studios in Ottawa, ON, and London, UK. That means I need to keep my desk organized, efficient, and tidy, so that I’m able to keep track of all my sketches and supplies when I move between cities. Even though tidiness and order are integral to my work space, it’s important for me to make a home on my desk for a few special figurines in order to spark inspiration. Some neon pink nail varnish, a sewing machine, some business cards, and my ProMarker pens are some of the unique objects that I’ve arranged on my desk. When I’m not drawing, I enjoy making jewellery, so I always keep a big jar of beads at the corner of my desk — incase I suddenly get the urge to lasso a colourful pattern onto some fishing wire or something.
