Artistic Process: What inspires you?

"The thing that has always inspired me The Most, is standing in front of a table of my stuff and interacting with the people who shell out their hard earned cash to purchase it. There is something so amazing about knowing that something I made with my hands goes on to have another life and becomes woven into the fabric of another person's day to day life. It's like stones in a pond, with the act of creating as the epicenter. I am inspired by people's response to what I do--even if the feedback is negative. I am a social geek and at heart painfully shy, but I engage in perfect dialogue with strangers through the items that go out into the world."
