Inspiration can come from anywhere: I read a quote that said: "To be creative must be tiring because you find fascination in all things"
I would agree, I can be amused by the silliest of things
I definitely associate with Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland as I definitely think outside the box
Art is like therapy, You can wander off into your own world, away from expectations & limitations
I spend a lot of time designing a Collection: Sourcing Materials & Trimmings, Collecting swatches, Sketching & Designing shapes & Creating moodboards
I love to experiment with materials & find new uses for old items, a lot of my work is Retro Futuristic, I like to reference the past & create for the future. I love to create something that doesn't exsist already.
