My day begins at 4am. That is the time I wake up every night. I used to force myself back asleep, but that is also the time that I have realized that I am at my most creative. So I lie there thinking of my work and creating new pieces in my head until I fall asleep again. I am currently in a highly creative mode so am working on at least five new pieces and forms as I write this.

I wake up next when my husband gets up to run his daily 6 miles at 6am. I take out my Ipad and spend several hours working on emails and social media until I realize I was supposed to head to my studio 15 minutes ago….so off I head. At the studio, as soon as I walk in there are always 5 immediate things to do from the day before. I will spend many hours working on at least 5 pieces simultaneously with my studio coordinator. I work in so many mediums, I could be using any of them in a single day.

Back to the computer where I get over 100 emails a day. I’m usually on a phone call as I answer emails because of so much incoming questions to deal with. More social media time here.

That evening is typically some function to do with work. This week I have the Smithsonian Craft Show as the judge, I’ve got a gala with the James Renwick alliance and two local openings. Then home to get one hour of snuggling with the Mouse (My husband and I refer to ourselves as Mouse and Moose…I wont say which is which) and then off to bed again……till 4am.
