I am always interested in how other artists come up the ideas and inspiration behind their work. An artist friend told me once that she finds inspiration for her work everywhere, that it's all around us. I strongly agree with this statement. Nature is my primary source of inspiration, but my work is influenced by many things. The mix of natural and urban, a phrase from a book, or even a song lyric find their way into the work. Observing others and how they interact, my own personal interactions, as well as my environment also get incorporated. All these things become subject matter for my art. So to say that inspiration is everywhere resonates deeply with me. A simple answer to what seems like a complicated question, but nonetheless -- very true.
