Being creative is my life. It is my oxygen. Without it I would probably just curl up and die...
Having worked (and breathed) as a Graphic Designer and illustrator all of my working life, I can't imagine doing anything but be creative. Even when I'm not 'working', I'm working on one of my own creative projects. There are so many ideas and projects going on (even in my head) that I sometimes find it hard to stay focused on the job at hand. Keeping numerous notebooks and journals everywhere helps – that way there is always something handy when I need to write or sketch an idea.
Then there's my love of drawing big faces in pastel and charcoal and expressive painting on big canvases. That's where my art studio comes in. Its my detached space where I can get messy and noisy (lately I've been playing The Cure) and escape from everyday life. Unfortunately I don't have as much spare time to spend there any more so when I do get the chance... its precious.
