An essential studio tool is my inspiration wall where I tack up found images and objects, plus a few samples and experiments. When I moved into my studio I installed 4'X8' homasote panels on three of the four walls and then painted them off-white, the same colour as the walls. My exercise bike faces one of my homasote walls and I look as I ride. My mind makes connections between the various objects and images and new ideas are born. Riding my exercise bike is the equivalent to soaking in the tub when it comes to relaxing the mind so that eureka moments seep in.
