What drives your creative spirit, Stacy?
The pure joy of creating! I enjoy mixing vivid colors, whimsical ideas, and a keen sense of humor to express the unexpected. I am also endlessly entertained by studying how we as human beings think, which is then reflected in my art and writing. Primarily I work with watercolors and pencils, and I also sometimes animate this work using digital tools. I love being surprised by whatever I make—whether it’s a painting, a story, a photograph, or an animation. My ultimate hope is to bring people joy and happiness with my art, to inspire their curiosity in life, and to help them develop their own sense of self. I seek to express the beauty and uniqueness of each and every thing, from the tiniest bug to the largest whale. Everything counts, everything matters. There is nothing unimportant in this world.
