"My father was a biologist, my mother is an artist, and I am somewhere in the middle. My best pieces are often inspired by something I literally threw over a mannequin and had a "Viola" moment. So I definitely understand the beauty of an accident.

I am all for conservation (the environment, manpower, money -all of it). Call me anti-waste. I also feel very strongly about supporting the infrastructure of the USA. Buy American-made and produce in the USA. My father would always say "take care of your people", and that is what I do! It is so important to treat human beings with kindness and respect. Treat people how you want to be treated." - Kim Schalk
