Backyard art studio

Room for easel and canvases

Lin Su, a Taiwan-born artist who lives in Los Angeles, California, added a 124-square-foot artist’s studio to her postage-stamp-size lot.

Here she’s free to paint and do art projects without cluttering her little home’s living room.

Clerestory windows and glass doors fill the space with light; tall bookcases along one wall hold books. And there’s ample space for her easel and canvases.
