I’m not kidding when I say that inspiration for my work comes directly from the places I visit. Some people may visit many counties and cultures and walk by all of that without bringing much information in their memory bank. I catch them all and store them in my camera and in my mind, I don’t know where or when they will come back to life but sooner or later they do.
On my visit to Cinque Terre, Italy, we walked through these ruins and as I pocked my head through those ancient window holes on the wall, I imagine the life that once existed there and the eyes of those who stared at the sea and dreamed of their dreams.
The sky, the sea, the birds and the boats… All beautiful views most of us dream about having.
Now when I’m working on this hot tub project for a client, I suggested a wall of smooth grey rocks with some windows that allow natural light in. I imagine the orange sunset and its golden rays lighting up the kids faces as they play in the water. I imagine a couple sitting in the hot tub sipping wine and smiling at their luck.
I enjoy the idea that I can bring happiness to people’s life by creating something beautiful!
