When my daughter Bea was a little girl, she found a seed in a seedless Satsuma, and planted it in a paper cup. Our little Satsuma tree has lived on our kitchen windowsill for years now, as a reminder that with a little faith, anything can grow. Creativity is like that too.
Sometimes we see beauty in the ordinary.
Or, upon reflection, we take the ordinary and transform it.
Sometimes inspiration comes to us in a flood.
Sometimes in a flash.
Or even in hindsight.
More often, it comes in disguise.
Or as a creative response to something we feel passionate about.
Perhaps we are inspired by another artist…as in Bea’s sculpture, The Ice Scream.
I love working with a creative team…
Sometimes it’s a process.
…but the end result is worth it.
However it comes to you, wherever you find your inspiration, you are never too young…
Or too old….
…To fly with it!
May all your ideas and inspirations be fruitful!
