Creative Interviews : Timor Cohen aka Timohandmade
Her home is also her studio, and is now her main source of livelihood, though she sometimes does some design work for others and still manages to teach painting one day a week. Ok Timor, over to you with your answers ...
1. Bananas (it's obvious why)
2. Bureaucracy (paperwork, bills, numbers, binders and reports do not do me any good)
3. Intolerance, unnecessary suffering
I have ADHD, and while it has many positive aspects, one of the negative ones was difficulty reading and writing. It took a lot of work to overcome it in Hebrew (today I'm addicted to the written word). but in the world today it is very difficult to "survive" without knowing to read and write well aspecialy in English… As I’m writing this I understand that recently I rather mastered this second language (as such), and even though it takes forever to answer each question, it’s still an achievement :)
The other achievement is the ability to make a living from something that interests me and that I love doing.
I guess I still have a lot to learn about balancing creativity, income, values and quality.
I would also love to learn printing techniques and how to drive a scooter, study Arabic, and the list goes on…
Thanks so much Timor and I wish you health, wealth and happiness in all your ventures!
