I often get asked, in interviews, or just casual conversation, where I get my inspiration from.
There are a lot of things to address in that answer, but always....and seriously always....I answer with "Children."
Children have an incredible need to express what they are feeling in the moment, and art is one of the most natural ways they can do that.
My own children inspire me every day. They get an idea, and do something about it. Right then. No thinking, no editing, no questioning. Totally from the heart.
And not afraid to mess up, make messes and get dirty.
Easier said than done, right?
Creativity has been on my mind. And specifically that balance between letting go, hitting the moon....and making sure you gave a net to catch it in:)
It's a balance for sure. But I can bet You'll hear me talking about this a lot more. It's been on my mind, and I have a lot of new exploring to do.
How do you get inspired? I'd love to hear.
