I talk a lot about inspiration on my blog, because I'm intrigued by how artists use inspiration.

When I create jewelry I am inspired by contemporary paintings, buildings, light fixtures, furniture, as well as geometric shapes, texture, and color.

I read a post by Cate on her Heart On My Sleeve blog about how laundry can be a source of inspiration.

Earlier this year Sharon from Knot-Cha-Chá! did a post about how a gray day inspired her to use the color gray.

Dickesen Dabbles blog by Betheny has a post about being inspired by riding on mass transit, painting what she sees out the window of the train.

What inspires you to create?

  1. Thanks for the mention! I still can not get over how beautiful that hanging laundry was through the eyes of the photographers!

  2. I do soooo much laundry, I will have to read Cate's blog! It's really true that so many different things can be inspiring. One of my biggest inspirations? My children! =)

  3. I agree with you Kim, kids are the best source of inspiration. They are so free and create what makes them happy, with wonderful results. Cate's post includes great photo's too.
