Sara's Spectrum: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

essential ingredients

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

i am

Why do you do what you do?

because it makes sense; because this world is much too beautiful, &

too many individuals have a story worth telling. i do it because it’s

my contribution to unity, because the light already exists..

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

the seed was planted to make this my culture while i was living the

university life i think; a combination of learning thought provoking

geography & environmental studies along with living and expanding

on my own, i began questioning everything really. why we do what

we do, the patterns across time and space, so many things; it shifted

my worldview.. & although i knew i never wanted to live the

officezombieninetofivelife, these questions also led to some answers

not worth ignoring, and plans worth taking. seeking out dreams of

wanderlust allowed the seeds to really grow; more questions more

answers more simplicity.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

i think i had to overcome trying to explain to non-creatives this

believer mindset. i realized i had to just Be, just Do, just go. accept

the fact that i can be the artist i am in all aspects of my life: not just

when i allowed myself the time to play. so many things helped me

throughout the unmapped out journey; every one involved in my life

contributed along the way - family friends strangers coworkers

mentors teachers kids, gosh, oh and travel has been a big helper &

exploring the depths of where we can go, what we can see, how we

can be; it has all been very shaping..

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

people inspire me: conversations with so many friends & folks ,

people watching , all things people. transformation inspires me: the

transformation of a butterfly, the transformation of dandelions; these

inspire and motivate me to become. i sure hope to inspire & ignite

others the way they inspire & ignite me.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

being a shellfish egoartist; its a constant piece of work but gosh i

learnt that separating yourself from the art itself is best practice with

best outcome.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

well i just moved back to the west coast into the mountains to live

this dream of creating and sharing alongside my twin in these twin

mountains of whistler|blackcomb; plans&goals are to establish

proper roots, seek out the light side, expand minds through imagery

& written word; ultimate dream goal is too big of a secret to share

but let’s say it involves collaboration, artists, space, & yoga.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

take it lightly: life’s gotta be a big beautiful joke - seriously, we

can’t be so serious.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

your dreams are not insignificant
