What inspires me to create my art

I never run out of ideas, only time
by Miriam Schulman




Everywhere I go I find inspiration. I make connections between what I see, and what art has been done in the past to create a new synthesis of creativity. The Savage Beauty retrospective of Alexander McQueen's fashion was fantastic because the curator, Andrew Bolton really allowed you to understand his creative process and how he synthesized his ideas. Collections were inspired by nature, life cycles, art history and more which is the same process I go through as an artist.

This video is the story behind my ideas for my newest artworks and works in progress.
