As bad as a reputation social media often gets these day, I have found that, when used appropriately, social media platforms can be a great source of inspiration, a place to connect and a space to express oneself. Especially instagram, with its relatively simple concept, has been not only a place where I can share my art, travels and photography, but also where I go to when I need inspiration. That could be inspiration for art, but also for recipes, travel destinations, interior design, photography and the list could go on. I am a very visual person (maybe due to the fact I am almost completely deaf on one side) and draw inspiration from what I see, I love creating mood boards on the walls of my room, not only with photo’s of me or I took myself, but just images of things, people, nature, colours, rooms, etc that I find beautiful, calming or otherwise inspiring. To give an example of what that looks like, see this post.
