What inspires you?
A question from a journalist. The worst sort of question.
You are going to sound either pretentious or idiotic no matter what you answer.
I don't know what inspires me, i do know what makes my heart lurch (coral charm peonies) or that moment when a boy rings and just before you answer you see his name on the screen. I know what makes me clap my hands and squeal, and do a little jump, most things, I am incorrigible. I also know what makes my blood boil, or what makes me turn my nose up in a "have it taken from my sight immediately sort of a way"
Quite how any of this manifests in anything creative i do, is beyond me.
That's why i always use the line, "my inspiration comes from the flowers themselves", that has everybody reaching for the sick bag.
When brides book in for a consultation i ask them to bring with them anything that inspires them, and their wedding breakfast menu.
The menu is just because i like food, and i am inherently nosey.
Things that i like at the moment
1. Customers who buy old cameras and then actually put film in them and make a picture.
2. Polaroid greetings cards
4. It is summer, i am once again all about the 4711.
