The Studio Experience
To keep the creative juices flowing, it is important that the working environment be an external expression of my artistic personality, providing an ever-evolving means of visual, verbal, tactile and even aromatic stimulation.
When I work, I like to create a certain atmosphere in the studio. If I am writing, sketching or composing, I like to light scented candles throughout the space. Engaging the senses heightens the experience for me.
While painting, I enjoy instrumental, new age and classical music. I especially love listening to scores created for the big screen and opera. Their ability to conjure stories and induce surrealistic, dreamlike pictures in my mind ignites my imagination. Romantic poetry and literature also beckon me to other worlds and I am completely drawn in. I drift off to another place and time, venturing outside myself into the world of the fantastic.
