just – E N J O Y –

It’s been quite a struggle to feel free about the direction in which I’m going.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the working life –Should I say: My working life– made it real easy to just switch off any desire to create and imagine because of what was needed from me.

No originality, can’t do’s, cero desire for new ideas, a really dry and uninspiring environment.

I am really terrible at self-reflecting words but 7 years of work do make an effect in one’s brain and the desire to create. Something that’s so innate for some people (at least it was for me during my university years)

So. To start: (I better) not think about how I am going to make things, wonder if they will make sense, wonder if they’re needed, and be free in the direction that ideas take me and just flow.
I acknowledge the fact that during those 7 years I knew that I was putting my creativity to sleep but I didn’t do much to keep it up, so, this is like a jump start on having that active brain that just shoots ideas all the time and appreciate them as they come and play with them, not just scare them away because there’s not enough time to make them. Creativity must be like a plant; you need to water it or else it’ll die.

To flowing.

To thinking about colourful things 24/7.

Hello | Hola

I have never been one of those people that loves to tell everyone what’s in her head, but I’ll try.
I never been of those who are very good at working with online things, even though I can make a book or an illustration on the computer, very contradictive?, maybe…

I’m hoping that this will be a tool to inspire myself and keep record of what I’m seeing, while trying to find my way in the textiles world.

Why did I change my mind about wanting to make graphics for textiles for the fashion industry? I guess that in the moment that we’re at, it is crucial to look around ourselves and try to add something positive, no matter how little it is. To be part of something that is a conversation starter on how we are going to change things and how we can all do something so our way of living doesn’t impact so negatively our surroundings.

I feel that for the most part, the fashion industry is about social media, celebrities, a luxurious lifestyle, and obviously, consumerism, and I feel that it doesn’t speak to everyday needs and every day people, it is for sure something pretty to look at and it is certainly inspiring, but I want to be part of something that I don’t feel is as vain.

Too blunt?
