Sarah Fix Inspires Us

Sarah Fix, Creative Director of Blend Images and current President of PACA/DMLA, pulls from a wide pool for her creative muse.

My go to sources for inspiration are: Kinfolk Magazine, Monocle magazine, Zite app., and I know this sounds like a shameless plug but the Blend Images blog has fine art contributors that have daily posts about new artists that are fantastic.

Kinfolk_Vol7_CoverI get fixated on specific subjects that take me down various paths for inspiration. I’m a huge Mid-Century modern fan and a member of the Los Angeles Conservancy.

We asked Sarah about her wishlist for the holidays: Wishlist for Xmas — Sebastião Selgado: Genesis photo book. I had the opportunity to see the prints in person at the International Center of Photography, NYC in October. If I can’t get an actual print, the book is the next best thing!

If Santa is feeling generous I’ll take a Donald Wexler home in Palm Springs… I’ve been really good.
