April Frost interview

What inspires you to keep making things?

I can't turn it off. Sometimes I have other things that I need to do and I want to turn my maker brain off, but I don't hold that power. It is simply who I am.

What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?

You are going to spend an ungodly amount of time mastering your craft. It may feel like it at the time, but none of it is time wasted.

"It may feel like it at the time, but none of it is time wasted..." — April Frost
