How do you represent LIVE, WORK, CREATE.?
I’ve been making more time for creative outlets over the last few years. I take Printmaking Classes at the School of Visual Arts . I’ve also been painting/drawing greeting cards for friends and family my entire life, and recently started painting watercolor postcards again, some inspired by my friend Vicki’s Jello molds. Fortunately, BKI is a very creative company, and I do feel that I get to be creative within my job. I want to Live, Work and Create art that I enjoy and feel good about, and if someone else can enjoy it as well, then that’s just icing.
