What fuels your impulse to make creative work?
Puppetry for me started as a small child. I was literally enchanted by it, and when I saw that it was a way that I could control and create my own world and make real my imagination, it was just a natural thing to start to make my own puppets and to express myself that way. As I grew up and was meant to figure out "what I wanted to be" it became clear to me that my most authentic expression was as a puppeteer; making things come to life. I still realize it its an odd practice, not really of this modern world, but a completely magical way of creating and being. And besides honestly continuing a momentum began in childhood, I am more and more aware of the profound meaning behind puppetry, how it touches a very ancient part of our souls, that the mystery of something lifeless coming to life enchants us because it quietly reminds us of the mystery of our own lives. I guess this is what it has always done for me since childhood and the real thing I keep looking for in the work I do… the spark of mystery that I recognize in my very self.
