I found this interview with the deeply connected Dr Martin Shaw on Kathy Van Kleek's website. His words resonated with such familiarity. He speaks my language and he speaks of the essence of what inspires my work. Bone memory. I've struggled articulating where my design ideas come from. I've described my work as other worldly, tribal, inspired by antiquity but now I know it is bone memory, that memory in our bones that is deeper than our life experience, deep as all that has come before and all that will come after. After hearing his words, I recognize that this is what I tap into when I am in my studio and I bring up the mind picture of my Muse in her cottage at the edge of the forest by the sea. "Trailing ideas that may be a god in disguise".
