Where are you from?
What is one thing you cannot live without?
A comfortable place to sit down and create. I learned it is really important for me to be in a good and positive environment… even if its not anything fancy… I need it to be positive and full of good vibes or I don’t feel I do my best work.
What’s your “pre-creativity” ritual? What gets you in your creative groove?
I go for a walk with my camera to get some photo inspiration. Or look through photos online about a particular something I want to research so I can figure out how I want to personally create it. Music always, always gets me in a good creative head space and is never not on while I work.
What makes you feel connected to HB?
The people. I have never lived in a more supportive city. I can tell you countless stories of how I have been supported and lifted up by this business, by this city, and the people here I have met along the way. I can not say it enough… this is a true city supportive of the arts in so many different ways and I have been so grateful to be an artist here.
How did you first connect with Surf City Still Works?
A friend sent me a link for a vodka label contest. I thought… well why not… a mosaic would look really cool on a bottle… and the rest is history.
