If you think you might go the crafty route for gifts this holiday season, then Sonia’s video is for you! It’s called ‘Translations,’ and she talks about the creative process: how she comes up with ideas, gets herself in the mood to create, and get ready for “translation.”
Sonia talks about how she goes from words to images to create works of art. That’s what she calls “translation.” It’s interesting to hear a creative person talk about how they actually create. I mean, stop and think about it: it’s not simply a matter of sitting down and making something!
She really emphasizes the importance of mood and how she has to be in the right mood in order to create. I loved her strategy of using music to get herself in the right mood. It’s so effective! If you ever need a pick-me-up and don’t want the “crash” that comes after relying on caffeine, then try playing some upbeat music. Works WAY better, even if it doesn’t taste as good ;). Anyway, Sonia gives some great ideas to getting in touch with your inner artiste. Check out her video below:
