THE MUSEUM OF LIGHT: Artists as Alchemists: Just as an alchemist transforms led into gold, do you feel that being an artist relates to that of being an alchemist? Do you view the artist journey and your creative expression, as alchemy?
TREVOR JACKSON: I believe an artist can take any situation -- whether it be good or bad -- and turn it into a positive thing.
THE MUSEUM OF LIGHT: The Evidence of the Journey: Artists are often labeled as "stars.” Just as a star radiates light and the planets then reflect this light, do you see your work as an artist like that of a star? Is this "light" that stars radiate merely the evidence of this journey of becoming a star/learning to radiate light?
TREVOR JACKSON: I do not see myself as a star in that sense but I do hope that my creativity can be a spark for others to find whatever makes them shine.
THE MUSEUM OF LIGHT: The Courage to Create: When an artist is not "creating" it is often labeled a "creative block." How do you navigate this space, how do you find the creative spark in the dark, and does it require courage to create from this unknown space? Describe this process.
TREVOR JACKSON: When I'm experiening a creative block, I tend not to force it and try to focus my mind on other things so that my thoughts have time to breathe. But the courage lies in the persistence and the trusting in one's self and their ideas.
