I thought about what inspires me to create and keep creating, ensuring that I keep the creative juices flowing freely. I looked around my bedroom--where I do all of my creating--and this is what I see:
I have about 15 Salvador Dali prints around my home, most of them are in my bedroom. Dali's art is inspirational for me because I am in love with how he has manipulated the human form to showcase the inner desires and thought processes that we tend to have, but not always share. The use of color & shape can inspire a wealth of passionate creative juices to flow.
Other jewelry artists are immensely inspiring. I wonder how they developed that idea & what inspired them to make it. I know only how elated, intrigued, and amazed I feel when I see something that I enjoy, and I wonder how the artist feels when it is completed.
Lastly, what I find inspiring is fashion. These fashion designers are truly revolutionary in being able to constantly create & recreate how fabric can be formed to the human body. Certain items can make you feel confident, glorious, and powerful & I appreciate how fabric + a thought process can provide this.
What inspires you & how do you channel it into your artistic endeavors?
