In which way do you utilise your work to contribute to these changes? I utilise my work to bring awareness to these things by valuing myself, I make time for being in my own creative imagination and process, and I continue to challenge myself and share the journey. I create work to entertain my own whims, understanding that my own freaky nature is what the world needs more of. I strive to collaborate and uplift people whenever I can. When all the stars are aligned, and I am doing all of these things and also kicking ass as a mother of three, I feel like I am basically doing the most potent work I possibly can to transform the beauty industry and the world in the ways I see are needed.
Other days, I feel like a flop and a failure. And, I continue to balance it all as a general practice, never as a result. The myth of being able to ‘do it all’ is too big and impossible. So I try to embody the change I want to see whenever I can.
How would you describe the aesthetics of your hair art to someone who hadn’t seen your work? Imaginative, playful, interesting, different. Fun. Compelling.
