April and her watercolor
“Comparison is the death of creativity. You can be inspired by others, but don’t measure yourself to them.
Creative people should give you energy — not diminish it. Watching creativity, people making, doing thinking, listening to live, music is exciting to me.
And last but not least — my latest mantra —Today is today. Be fully you.”
— April Cornell

“Making a home everywhere — on an airplane, a hotel, a cabin a kitchen table. If you create a corner of beauty to help you focus, life will follow your direction.
Flowers, pencils, paints, a notebook, books. A small vase with the curves of a woman can establish an inspiring zone quickly.
Feels like home.”
