Melanie at Inward Facing Girl is featuring my photography and studio in her Art I Heart series today and I couldn't be more flattered and honored.

The turquoise supplies were photographed at Uppercase Magazine while I was visiting last summer. The office is so lovely that I didn't move a thing when I was taking pictures. Although Janine did "tszuj" a little as I was shooting. See more pictures from the visit.

The dripped coffee was shot last spring at the Blue Bottle Coffee stand on the High Line in New York City. Isn't the swan neck kettle gorgeous? The High Line is one of my favorite places to visit in the city. I took this picture at the end of a wonderful day of street photography with Sandra.

From the interview with Melanie:

I'm a very intuitive worker. I try not to plan too much and I let my mood and circumstances tell me what I should be working on. Sometimes it's just about sorting through a box of old things.
I have a list of ideas and concepts that I revisit constantly to see if anything stands out to me or feels like I have more to add to it.

Read more over at Inward Facing Girl and get a peek at the first photos of my newly organized studio! I've been working on cleaning up my space for MONTHS and it's finally starting to come together. If there is anything you would like to know about my creative process or my studio, ask questions in the comments and I would be happy to answer them! Here's one secret, while the pictures show a perfectly arranged studio, behind the camera and just out of frame is a complete disaster of everything ELSE. It's true. Remember: Nothing is perfect.
