How would you describe your style?
Playful. Organic. Accessible.
Are there any artists / designers that you particularly look up to?
I actually admire ANYONE who is creating, designing or making art in any way.
What sort of things inspire you? Where do you look for inspiration?
My kids. My fish. My kitchen and backyard. I try to remember to find inspiration in the mundane and everyday because that's what I'm experiencing a majority of the time. Like when my youngest son, Rex was born and I had three kids under five and what felt like no time to shower and I would just sit on the floor to watch the fish when I had five minutes to myself. It became as close to entertainment slash meditation that I got. And I became obsessed with and couldn't stop talking about my Frisky Fish. That essentially became my inspiration for my line of essential oils.
When do you feel the most creative?
After two glasses of wine…. No, actually it's random and that's why I scribble lists, notes, and ideas everywhere...on my phone, post-it's, my notebook, my hand. And then eventually one of those random words and ideas turns into something.
What is your creative process like?
Experimental. Organic. Collaborative.
What's the coolest artistic tip you've ever received?
I'm completely paraphrasing something someone said a few years ago:
Just put it out there. Get your work an ideas out into the world. Don't wait for it to be perfect. I think the ACTUAL phrase was "just get shit out there". The sentiment really stuck with me.
