Desiree Habicht - Riverside, CA

1. How do you describe yourself?
A true type A personality, multiple projects going at one time, never satisfied with the last, always looking forward to the next.

2. What is your creative process? I keep many sketch journals and sketch almost everyday, I also have a bigger sketchbook by my bedside that I can draw out ideas. If I get an idea suddenly for a quilt or for a fabric I will write it on my dry erase board until I have time to get back to it.

3. What's your style? I don't like being categorized or put into a box as an artist but I would have to say I am a pictoralist mostly but I know my artwork will continue to develop and change.

4. How long have you been a quilt maker/fiber artist? I started quilt making in 2001 and soon jumped into making art quilts when I entered a challenge in a guild.

5. Do you listen to music when you make art? Sometimes, but often I am so focused in that creative zone that I am happy to just have the quiet.

6. What do you do when you are blocked creatively? Jump over to something else, gardening, going to museums, dive into some books, visit with other artists all can be very motivating and encouraging. If all that fails I just force myself to keep going.

7. Do you teach? I do teach occasionally, I am trying to do more of it. I think my favorite part is seeing the excitement in the whole creative process in the faces of others.

8. Are there artistic endeavors that you have yet to do? Always, you never know what door will open next and where it will lead.

9. How do you balance your family life and art? I find this to be the biggest challenge, it takes time to do any interest and if its a business requires more time and energy. Like most other working women, I struggle with how to fit so much in when there are only 24 hours in a day!

10. What is the best part about what you do? It's this whole creative journey I am on and the wonderful people I am meeting along the way.
