What hobbies do you have outside of your professional field that keep you inspired and motivated to generate personal work? How do they inspire you?
I love traveling and like to explore new places in my spare time. I also enjoy hiking and being in the outdoors. I grew up rock climbing, bike riding and walking up mountains, which I hated as a child but now i really appreciate the active lifestyle my parents exposed me to. Different types of architecture, landscapes and foliage always inspires new work.
Do you have a hard time balancing being a creative professional and generating personal work that you're proud of?
I find balancing life in general hard at times. I try to dedicate my weekends to personal work and professional work during the week.
What time of day do you feel the most creative? What about the most productive?
I'm definitely a morning person! I wake up with the sun and tend to go to sleep with it too. Sometimes that means waking up at 5am...eeek! I have a young daughter who also helps with my early alarm. I'd say my most productive time is between 9am-12pm. I love an afternoon nap too (a luxury these days).
What are your creative goals for the future?
I'm looking forward to my first solo show this summer and a book launch. I'd later like to focus on a book project i've had in the works for a while.
Are you working on any personal projects right now? If so, can you share a little bit about your inspiration and your creative process?
I have a few personal projects in the works. I'm very excited about the products I've been developing in my shop- enamelware and prints. I have a few new things coming very soon...
What scares you?
Watching my daughter grow so quickly!
What does success mean to you?
Success means enjoying the day to day and being able to create whatever inspires you.
Why do you create?
Drawing, painting and creating helps me to express my thoughts and feelings without words. I've always found it difficult to communicate through writing. Pictures make more sense.
