Stone. I mean - your making history with history. It’s ancient!
Charcoal, Moulding, adding, blending and subtracting with this wonderful material in life drawing classes. Ephemeral.
Lastly, oils- but I struggle. Sometimes it feels as though I’m wrestling a piece into being.
How do you practice self care?
I am an over-thinker, so for the most part my self care is getting into the studio, creative writing, movement, gratitude with my dear friend Yashodha (who shared a gratitude practice with me via email for 3 years daily!) life drawing, dancing or swimming.
What is your favorite piece of jewellery and why?
LTJ rings! I always wear a spacey-silver ring on my left thumb that my sister made. I believe it's a good luck charm for our family.
What scents bring you joy?
I have a weird one with cigarettes! (I don’t smoke). My auntie Julia used to bring hand-me-down clothes and cookies when I was little; She was fun and cool, cookies were good.. and smoked a bunch.
A word of advice for someone new to creating artwork?
It’s frustrating, then exhilarating, then frustrating again… then it wins you back with a little bliss. Whatever happens, don’t give up: You will learn a lot more about yourself and your mind if you persist.
