6 Questions with Sabine Pick
6 questions, a tiny interview with artists, makers and creative folks.
If there is one thing I believe in.....
Not sure how to answer this. I don’t really have any beliefs about things. I prefer things to be fluid. Perhaps nature is the only thing that I believe in. That it is a constant reminder of how beautiful the world is. And that is where I feel whole.
Each day I complete this one ritual, action or routine.....
My dog takes me for a walk every morning, rain, hail or shine. It has become a type of meditation for me. I look at the clouds, the sky, the ocean, the landscape and how it is constantly changing. It gets me out of my head. I am a much happier person after it!
I desire to.....
Be in my studio all day and all night and just be a maker!
Before I die, I would like to.....
Live in any Scandinavian country. I want to experience all the seasons and live in a tiny house in the countryside.
The book that changed my life......
There are a few: Carolyn Quartermaine; Unwrapped. To see a designer make calligraphy into art and fabric made my heart sip a beat. Finding a copy of Three Classics of Italian Calligraphy; Arrighi, Tagliente, Palatino. Italian calligraphers that played with shapes and forms but still maintaining beauty.
The wisest words ever said to me were.....
It is only a thought and a thought can be changed.
Optional 7th Question
One thing most people do not know about me......
I can whistle using my fingers in my mouth. One of those really loud whistles that you hear at concerts. It is so inelegant. And people are often surprised seeing it coming for me.
