Do you have a secret swimming hole (or favorite)? tell us about it.
Yes! Ice cold with aqua clear water with large rocks to jump off into. You reach it after a 5 mile hike through desert, oaks and many stream crossings and the occasional weekend gold prospector.

What is your go-to picnic fare?
Fresh round of bread, Hard salami, P’tit Basque and a bottle of rose.

Describe your dream summer ootd (outfit of the day).
Linen everything.

Desert Island music?
Naive Melody- Talking heads, Jams Run Free – Sonic Youth, Long Boat Pass – Tennis, Miraculous weekend – Peter Ivers, This is the day – The The, In the End – Charlottte Gainsbourg, Islands – the xx, Everybody wants to rule the world – Tears For Fears, Sleep Walk – Santo & Johnny, Dreams – Fleetwood Mac

What will you be reading this summer vacation?
The life-changing magic of tidying up. . . under a pile of clutter.

What’s got you on your soapbox lately?
Going hiking and seeing trash littered everywhere! Seriously bums me out when we all should be respecting how we should be enjoying the gift of the outdoors and leaving it as beautiful as we found it. I’m a strong believer in leave no trace.

Tell us about something you recently learned.
To make sure to enjoy every minute of every day. I’m lucky that I get to do what I love sometimes it even makes me grin from ear to ear in my studio and dance a little and pinch myself that this is real. Even when things get hard I need to just take a step back and enjoy.

Current obsession?
Day dreaming about the next time I can play hooky and go mushrooming.

Who is your art crush?
Matt Wendel. My jaw nearly dropped when I saw his sculptures for the first time. The natural beauty of his sculptural forms, use of texture and color that really can only be captured in person. Evoke being transported into another world that I want to live in.
