‘As a visual artist I get inspired by everything that can be considered an “image”. I’m active in the movie industry, so a lot of my inspiration comes from movies or shows that make my heart skip a beat. Sometimes that’s a character, the atmosphere, their clothes, the storyline or the use of colors.
Other artists can inspire me massively as well. I have a library of artbooks from my favorite artists. I’m actually a bit of an “asocial follower” on Instagram, because when I scroll my feed, I actually just want to see a bunch of great art and inspiring people.
That boosts my motivation to start creating myself! That’s why I aspire to get those inspiring images on my feed as much as possible, with the exception of the cute faces from my dearest family and friends, which I can just about tolerate.
I love going out for a huge walk with my favorite music in my ears. The colors of my surroundings can inspire me, like the trees in Indian summer or a sunset, but also the lyrics from my music can get my mojo started.
