I like looking at things that takes me by surprise.  The things that most inspire me are not usually art. I light up watching birds, and nature. There is an elderly raccoon living under my porch that I am in love with, and a great blue heron who fishes in my pond who looks like a pterodactyl. I also love reading memoirs written by people who have had near-death experiences.  I have stacks of these books all over the house, and often get chastised for leaving piles of them on tables and chairs.  Robert will sometimes say, " Honey!  I moved your heaven books to the mudroom!  These books make me marvel at the

mysteries of life and inspire me with ideas for sculptures. I get a lot of ideas for pieces after reading the fiction of Haruki Murakami.

As for visual artists-  I love looking at the intriguing pencil drawings of Céline Guichard, the bread sculptures by Matteo Lucca, the embroidered inner tube rubber pieces by Hannalie Taute, and the fascinating furniture made by Maximi Riera.  I am in awe of the wood sculptures by Katsura Funakoshi, Bruno Walpoth, and Andreas Senoner. I love discovering new (for me) artists on Instagram.
