Collecting Things

As seen in her interview, artist Melanie Yazzie is never at a loss for ideas because she collects objects and images for a wall of inspiration in her studio. 

In my home studio space, I collect a lot of sort of knick-knacks from different places, and I’m really inspired by antiques, different really special objects and the collecting of those objects and special things.
