Where does your inspiration come from?
I'm inspired both by nature and myths, I love travel and adventures. When working on paintings and art I try to integrate that experience of adventure or the unknown with touches of home and nature. When sewing I create or choose textiles that reflect my experiences or ideas. I create wearable art, I find things I enjoy and talk about them or integrate them into my pieces. I guess I'm inspired most by everyday life, any my work is a reflection of the 'things' I find valuable.
When do you feel the most creative?
I feel most creative when I'm creating. I usually need to be alone, sometimes with music, and then remind myself what inspires me, if there are recent images from a trip we took or thoughts I had while traveling, I look at my journals, research images and get to it. I find that when I'm creating, I completely lose track of time and can stay up all night just drawing or sewing. I think painting is my favorite which is why I paint each silk screen by hand instead of using photo emulsion techniques, it's what separates my tee shirt fonts apart from other designers. Each and every shirt is screened with my bare hands and handwriting. There is something magical about creating with our physical bodies, don't get me wrong digital has it's place too, but you can feel the love of something handmade.
