WHAT INSPIRED YOU?
I have few but fond memories of going strawberry picking in the summer. We would go to a farm just down the road from our house—it sells ice cream in June and pumpkins in October. I was very, very young when we would go picking, but I remember being dead set on finding the biggest strawberry in the field. I would take the already-picked ones out of our basket to compare sizes, just to be sure. I think the image of finding that one big special thing is something a lot of people can remember having as kids. Kids are entertained by such small and seemingly random things, and much of my art is inspired by finding beauty and meaning in small things like that. Its a trait I hope people nurture in themselves, no matter how old they become.
