Caylee tagged me in an Inspiration Blog Hop last week, and now it’s my turn to answer four questions about my creativity.

What are you working on?

Right now I am working on my Get Messy art journal (in the red Moleskine), preparing for a pool art performance piece where I play “Earth” from Captain Planet (the leaves), getting ready for the Stuffed Animal Sleepover I’m hosting, and a bunch of other things. I’m always working on blog content, searching for street art, and writing for future digital products.

How does your work differ from others?

In terms of blogging, I feel like my work differs from others because I do a little bit of grass roots based projects to interact with strangers. I do my best to take myself to the streets to encourage positive thinking and creative living.

In terms of guerrilla art, most people (at least in my area) are men, and most of those men have very dark work. Both in themes and in actual aesthetics. They are way more talented than I am, but I do my best to make up for my lack of skill with enthusiasm. I want to leave color everywhere and let people know they are loved.

Why do you create what you do?

I create because I’m happy, and I create because I want others to be happy. That’s what most of this boils down to, but there are other reasons. I’m passionate about public art, I’m passionate about sharing, and I’m passionate about color. I create for the people I love, and I create because it’s literally my job. I create so I can get to interact with people, including strangers, online friends, and my favorite people in the entire universe.

How does your creative process work?

My creative process differs widely from project to project, but I tried to find common themes, which I wrote down above.

I tag Cara, Carly, and Marielle to answer the same questions next week. They inspire me for very different reasons, but something they all have in common is spreading joy to other people. I can’t wait to see how you answer these questions.
