"I respect philosophers and scientists, for they embrace the question mark. When we question old conventions and encourage new perspectives, we evolve as thinkers, viewers, doers, and changemakers. For me living an artful life means embracing the question mark of it all and using curiosity to unlock the beauty in the people and spaces around me."
My tips for creative problem solving as shared with The Style Line:
"My first reaction to recognizing a problem is to envision a creative solution. An example from this past year was when our developers accidentally triggered a bug (tech error) in our app, which started sending endless push notifications to our 500 something users at the time. Gulp. My immediate reaction? I grabbed my dog, my phone, and a coral colored hand towel, and headed outside. I positioned my dog in front of a neighbor’s garage, placed the towel on top of his head (poor guy), and snapped a pic. I wrote up a quick note explaining the error and how to turn off the notification, my co-founder Amy programmed the email, and we started the whole thing off with “Whoops! Cover your eyes. Mumsy has gone rogue.” Within a matter of minutes we not only had a solution, but an opportunity to demonstrate how we could transform something frustrating into something fun. The best part? Our community loved it."
