Visual Artist & Writer Elise R. Peterson: Quotes on What Inspires Her

"I remember being 5 years old and listening to Barry White. His song went off the radio and I started crying because I missed his voice. So, the classics inspire me. The culture of the late '60s and late '70s inspire me, the music that I listen to at my grandma's house inspires me. Just very nuanced moments of my childhood inspire me the most. A sense of familiarity. The clothes I wear, the music I listen to, the food I cook. I like that sense of familiarity; it feels like home." - Excerpt from an interview with The Fader, December 2015
