1) What is your current Moleskine notebook?

Alarge sketchbook, purchased for a trip to New Orleans. The heavier, unlined pages hold up well under various media and are sturdy enough to paste things into. These things are indestructible. 

2) How do you use your notebook?

I began using them as my day-to-day sketchbook which I always have with me, but realized their true genius when I went I began traveling abroad. As an artist, writer and collector, I find these to be the perfect thing to bring with and always they are my favorite souvenir. Before a trip, I paste my itinerary in the back, as well as things like bank numbers to call in case of lost wallet, addresses for sending post cards, etc. For the rest- I love to fill the pages not only with drawings and writings, but also with business cards of places I loved, ticket stubs from museums, and anything else that catches my fancy. (Yes, I travel with a gluestick.)

3) What's the next place you plan to take your notebook to?

Rehoboth Beach on a trip to see friends at the seaside! Later in the month, upstate to visit the family. I’m also hoping for a trip to Edinburgh and Amsterdam to see friends before too long…

4) What do you want to tell the world?

Hmm. I’d like to tell the world to be kind and generous, curious and compassionate. Explore, share and enjoy. And, something small to think about… Most people can answer easily when asked who their favorite band, author, movie, etc, but I suspect there are many who cannot readily reply when asked who their favorite artist is. If you don’t know, there’s not enough art in your life! 

5) Where will you and your notebook be in 5 years?

This particular book will have long since been filled and added to the archives (which by then will be in an old barrister bookcase). I will have a new one –purchased for a trip abroad– in which I’ll be planning and doing sketches for a solo exhibition in a gallery.
