About Living Mindfully:
There are so many things that inspire my work in my daily life. It can begin with one of my sons giving me a flower on our walk to school, or a conversation with a friend or even a song/podcast I hear. I'm often inspired by books but mostly I am inspired by color I see around me. Color from textiles inspire me greatly-Madeline Weinrib, John Robshaw, Textiles from my seven years living in Asia, Indian Embroideries, water of all types-lakes, oceans, puddles, my husbands pink shirts, other artists-particularly the works and thoughts of Agnes Martin, Helen Frankenthaler and Mark Rothko.
Nature is a powerful source for me too-, birds, lizards and feathers.I've always loved fashion and followed it religiously-- colorful shoes, new patterns designers put out each season and jewelry-Temple St. Clair & Caroline Ellen. My travels to some of my favorite places like Italy, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Paris and New York are forever an inspiration. ....My eyes and ears are wide open to life.
Look up. See. Notice. Stop for a few breaths before reacting. Enjoy a moment for whatever it is.
