I was so fascinated with the community, and I loved how people left feeling happy. It seemed like a really great place to be. The other side is, I was never really great in school when it came to math and English. I always gravitated more toward art—making things, painting, and drawing—so a crafts-based career was more in my future. WHAT INSPIRES YOUR CREATIVITY? For me, creativity is being open and observing what's going on. I love seeing what other creators are doing! At one point, I was super obsessed with Gustav Klimt. I loved his textures and colors and the beauty of the women. I was fascinated with that whole time period. When I went to Vienna, I visited his galleries and saw all of his work. I was very much into it. I still love his work, but I don't know if I have a favorite artist now. Instead, I enjoy collaborating. I've been collaborating with Javiera Estrada, an artist I met through doing hair. She does mixed-media art, so collaborating with her—and getting into her thought process—has been really inspiring.
