Episode 032 features an interview with painter Lorie Amick, a founding member of Artists' Own artists cooperative in Lafayette, Indiana and teaches watercolor classes at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. We touched on growing up in a family of creative "makers," finding her way through art, and chasing squirrels of inspiration.

Lorie went old school with her Look-Ups, sharing two books: Make Trouble by John Waters, his graduation speech at RISD from a few years ago (https://www.amazon.com/Make-Trouble-John-Waters/dp/1616206357), and a childrens' book called What To Do With an Idea, a story on ideas and creativity (https://www.amazon.com/What-Do-You-Idea/dp/1938298071). She also shared her love of history and ancestors, through a memorial site she goes to often called Find A Grave.com, https://www.findagrave.com, and a podcast called Talking Hoosier History, from the Indiana Historical Bureau, http://www.in.gov/history/TalkingHoosierHistory.htm.
