Here’s a little bit about her:
I have lived on the West coast for most of my life, straying for a few years to live in such places as Montreal, Yukon Territories, California and the Caribbean. I find travel is one of the few guarantees that can illuminate the spirit. Ironically when you travel, you learn more about yourself knowing less about the world around you. Raised amidst middle class intentions and by a severely independent mother, I learned quickly that your environment only dictates who you are for a little while, anything can change.
I spent many years trying to buy my education attending art and design school and studying media only to realize most revelations have come from simple day to day observations. I have a small family, so I look to my friends to reel me in when wander to far away. I have spent the past twelve years in Vancouver as a graphic designer, managing a variety or businesses, and co-ordinating exhibitions and festivals. I love bringing people together to create memories that last a lifetime.
And here’s how she answered my 6 questions about creativity:
What does it mean to you to be creative?
Being creative means leading with your heart, and not your mind. Doing something purely for the joy of the process, and the energy that can be passed on when others experience what you have created. The expression ‘…dance like no one is watching’ comes to mind.
What triggers your creativity?
the unknown and the familiar
What hinders your creativity?
Trying to conform to other peoples expectations.
What’s the wildest journey your venturesome spirit has taken you on?
Swimming with humpback whales – its seemed like a good idea at the time!
What does being bold and provocative mean to you?
Being bold to me is about being brave, saying what you mean in the face of adversity. Being provocative is about being deliberate in what you do, but still weaving some small sense of mystery around your intentions.
What’s next for you?
I have no idea, and I like it that way!
