Artists tend to inhabit their studios the way others inhabit their homes, and a visit to painter/collagist Alison Kendall’s studio reveals her journey from science to art. Spotted on In the Make , Kendall’s studio is a personal natural history museum where this artist, originally trained as a marine ecologist, surrounds herself with objects from the natural world and books; reflecting her interests, thoughts, and creativity. Photography by Klea McKenna for In the Make . Above: Kendall's collages hangs above her eclectic collection of richly hued objects. Above: Kendall's studio is a small sectioned off space among many artist's studios in a warehouse in San Francisco's Mission District. Wood planks have been screwed into the concrete block wall to make it easier to pin up art. Above: A patina of paints has developed over time on Kendall's work table. Above: Kendall keeps her working tools tidy. Her brushes are stored in a old caviar cannister. Her books are stacked in columns. Above: A vintage bookend keeps Kendall's books in place. Above: Kendall's interest in birds belies her interest in life sciences. A collection of birds that Kendall has cut out (R) will appear in her collages and paintings. Above: The artist in her studio.
