Q & A:

Do you listen to anything (music, podcast, audiobook, etc.) while you create? If so, what are some of the ones you like to listen to best?

I love listening to podcasts in the studio. Some of my favorites of late: The Great Women Artists Podcast with Katy Hessel, The Create! Podcast with Ekaterina Popova, Selfhealers Soundboard with Dr. Nicole LaPera and Jenna Weakland, and Articles of Interest by Avery Trufelman.

If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?

If I could tell my younger self one thing it would be to believe in myself and have more fun!

Name one place you really like to visit and tell us why.

I really loved visiting Joshua Tree National Park near Palm Springs, CA. I love being near the water but the desert has a beauty and Earth energy that feels very grounding and spiritual to me.

What is a favorite quote of yours?

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. -Albert Einstein

One piece of advice I would give to young artists is to be yourself, and to be kind to yourself and others.
