How do you define success?

I see success as preparation meeting opportunity. I’ve learned there are things I can control and others I can’t. I feel like as long as I’m taking small steps towards what I want, focusing on what I can control, and having fun along the way, I’m successful.

What are you most grateful for?

My family and friends. Also that I have a studio and time to make my work.

What is your favorite word and why?

Plethora There are many ways of seeing and experiencing the world. Small shifts in perspective can change everything.

What are your three best habits?

Exercise, Meditation and Reading. I either run or work out at the gym 5-6 days/week. It’s a great stress reliever and helps me sleep better. Meditation has saved me more than once. It helps me let go of the things I cannot control. I read everyday. It brings me joy and gives me ideas to explore in my work.

When do you feel as though you are in a state of “flow”?

When I’m painting I’m very present. Interesting and surprising things happen and I respond in often a very intuitive way. It becomes a dance. A dance that can not be repeated but enjoyed and savored in the moment.
