I find summer very inspiring. I can't stop admiring, how everything that surrounds us blossoms from a little seed. I look forward to every summer. It's the time when I get to spend time with my family away from the busy streets of the city and enjoy the summer sea breeze.
These are really wonderful moments.
I had a wonderful childhood. My parents worked in a summer resort where we had a small apartment and often got to spend the night there. At night I would fall asleep to the sound of waves and wake up to the sound of the early risers walking, children playing on the beach and seagulls gliding near the sea.
Other days I would spent time with my grandmother who had a big garden and grew a lot of different fruits and vegetables. I still remember the taste of freshly picked tomatoes and peaches.
Tough question because I have too many favourite authors. I love stories of Graham Green, like Erich Maria Remarque and Hemingway, but if I have to choose a book for the summer I think it would be something F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote. Perhaps: "Tender is the Night ".
My favorites band ever is "Queen". But any catchy tune or melody brings out summer feelings for me.
In my summer - film - list I'd include all films staring Robert Redford. On top of the list will be Out Of Africa where he stared with Meryl Streep. It's a very special one for me.
Summer is a wonderful period for all projects. I like to collect many different natural materials: sea pebbles, twigs, flowers, leaves and whatever encounter that I can be used for a project later on.
I particularly enjoy making plaster casts from leaves and flowers, then use them for my polymer clay jewelry.
