Recently I have been thinking quite a bit about my desire to create again (on that note - expect some exciting changes coming to WEL soon!), as well as how to keep myself inspired and I realized that a lot of the time my inspiration comes from other women doing amazing things, and creating beautiful art. Thus, is born a little muse series for WEL.
A long time muse of mine has been Swedish signer and artist, Lykke Li. Of course I love her music, style and her adorable little Swedish accent, but what I love most is her as an artist. It takes a lot of guts to be an artist in this world- to create and not conform. To listen to the voice within you, and not the voice of others telling you what to do.
I recently listened to an interview of her where she was discussing these very things, and then she got on the topic of memories and longing, and she said "an artist is always longing- not for what happened, but for what they felt ... and I think a lot of great art is created out of longing."
