“Babies are people not props. Make sure to put their well being and safety above everything else.”
Kristen Cook. Very randomly found her on youtube. She just has this wonderful energy and you can just see how much she loves her job and the babies she works with. She as this incredible connection with the babies, and her use of words never fail to hit me in the feels. Her works reflects this. So natural and honest. I could listen to her talk all day.
Another inspiration for me is the paintings of Charles Marion Russell. I grew up with theses in my home. They taught me how to tell stories and show emotion through imagery. How you should always try to make the person looking at your work want to explore it and find a deeper meaning.
