1.] Where do ideas come from?

Inspiration, instinct, and imagination. Also experience, life, and breath. Building on what you know, and taking it out of the box.

2.] What is the itch you are scratching?

It's all about deepening our connection. Self-expression and connection. I love and strive for these things in my actions, my relationships, and my work. Unearthing our common ground and finding creative ways to share my voice.

3.] Early bird or night owl, tortoise or hare?

Night owl. Mostly a tortoise but I can be a hare if I’m excited or if it’s necessary.

4.] How do you know when you are done?

I don’t ever really feel done. Life, work, art, relationships are all living and breathing and changing. I can reach a deadline for sure, but there’s a always something to edit or improve if I have the time.
