Do you find yourself taking on too much? Can you not turn down an exciting idea?

I constantly find myself submerged in ideas and concepts that I feel I must finish! I have a backlog of projects I would just love to dive into! My partner and I always say, there is not enough time in the day, but there is never enough time in a week or month it seems...

How do you prioritize a work day? How do you stay focused?

I've been busy with tasks from my day job (though it leaks into evenings quite easily) and I have not had much time for my own exciting projects. Though, I occasionally work on something and post to my Facebook or Tumblr, and I post to my inspiration blog for the time when I *have time* to work on another large piece! It's so important to write down ideas and save them for a later date.

Do you have a place where you keep all of your (dreams, goals) ideas?

I have been up to some things lately :) (Smile) I finished the Dendris Lupus piece for Wilderness, an Auguste Clown Gallery exhibition in Australia. I have been making jewelry, but only for myself at the moment. I have temporarily closed my Etsy shop because I feel I need to change much of what I'm offering and I want to deliver something different. There may not be enough time in a week or month, but I am determined to keep doing what I love, even if it is a struggle against time :L !

Animal Myth, folklore, and ghost stories are very inspiring to me. It is undeniable that we feel strange, often times otherworldly connections to animals. In my work I try to honor the spirit of the animal, the symbolism behind it, and the guidance that they offer.

*If you are interested in a commission, please contact me and I will work with you and your vision.
