Making art, teaching and travel are my greatest passions. We creative people are environmental sponges. Everything we see and experience in our lives finds its way into our art and design. Even while I enjoy downtime I am looking for things to bring back to the lab to share with my students (who are like family).
There is no greater joy than showing a student how they too can find their way as a creative. Honestly, half of the battle is just doing it. Make something everyday, even if it’s the tiniest thing; be creative. Treat your art and design as if it were a job. Give it time and effort and you will find your way.
