Q: How do you tap into your creative potential?
A: I practice what gives me joy and happiness to nurture my creativity. I actively venture outdoors on hikes and touch the earth. I also value daily routines like Yoga, meditation, cooking, petting the cat, reading, and sharing with my family. I love building these experiences and precious moments that often become the subject of my work.
Q: How does creativity express in you?
A: I live creatively by finding alternative ways to be more sustainable and connected to the natural world. It’s important for me to live in connection with nature and find creative ways to reduce waste and help heal the Earth. Some changes I have committed to are living in a tiny space, going minimal, not contributing to mass production, and transitioning into a zero-waste and plastic-free lifestyle. I enjoy the process of making my own eco-friendly toothpaste, doing the laundry by hand and sharing my story with others.
Q: Do you have any tips for cultivating creativity and innovation?
A: The most important thing for me is learning to sit with my inner self and opening my imperfections to others. I went through the change of becoming more emotionally and creatively open by focusing less on my vulnerabilities and what I didn’t have. This transition helped me nourish my mind and creative spirit.
