Where Women Create Magazine
"Know you can write, sculpt, paint, teach, plan, clean, create, do, care, watch, research, and more in the midst of spaghetti flying, dogs barking, headaches, upset tummies, alluring people or activities, darling children, good elders, mates, friends, having no time to pick up the house, and facing big challenges, and walking through hell"
-Clarissa Pinkola Estés
"i USED TO THINK THAT IN ORDER TO MAKE ART, YOU HAD TO HAVE HUGE SPANS OF TIME IN THE STUDIO THAT WERE PEACEFUL AND UNINTERRUPTED, BUT YOU CAN WAIT A LIFETIME FOR THIS! THERE IS NO PERFECT TIME. THE TRUTH IS YOU NEED TO MAKE ART WHEN YOU CAN. LIKE EXERCISE IT IS BETTER TO DO 10 MINUTES OF ART THAN NO ART AT ALL. MY FAMILY IS LARGE, AND WE GO OUT FOR BIG FAMILY DINNERS. WE OFTEN BRING NOTEBOOKS AND DRAWING MATERIALS. I ACCOMPLISH A LOT OF WORK AND IDEAS FROM THESE SKETCHES AT DINNER. DRAWING WHEN YOUR MIND IS OCCUPIED IS GOOD BECAUSE THE SUBCONSCIOUS CAN EMERGE. YOU'RE LESS WORRIED ABOUT THE PRODUCT. THESE MOMENTS WHEN WE LET OUR GUARD DOWN IS WHEN THE BEST ART COMES OUT. the less you think, usually the better it is"
