"Among other things, I am inspired by color, by far-fetched metaphors, by the way we glorify childhood, by our relationships with inanimate objects and by the humor of human emotion. And when I'm not inspired, I am most certainly amused. I think some of my favorite things that I've made have been born out of amusement."
Katie Jane Powell is an art director in the @byuadlab with a portfolio full of creative inspiration. For Powell, this inspiration largely comes from her admiration for others, particularly her grandfather and his example of creativity.
"He taught the shop class at a middle school, and while this may be the most glorified creative job, he was consistently making and consistently giving. He was always experimenting with different mediums and always working with his hands. He never got burnt out because he allowed himself to be curious, to be amused. I too love jumping mediums and working with my hands, and I hope that I can be as generous with my creations as he was."
