IN THE STUDIO

I do not think inspiration is divine. I think its intrinsic, but ignited by the elements around you. I like to imagine it like a seed that wont be a flower until its ready. All you can do is keep nurtured with water, sun, healthy soil, essentially a healthy subconscious. When ideas seem to spring forward out of nowhere, I can see how one might like to look outside ones self for the source, but I think its healthy to acknowledge the power our minds have to surprise us. I try to practice being grateful and aware of my surroundings. This helps me develop a keen eye for the small details that will eventually be part of that “ flower “ later.
