Sing in me, O Muse!
Once, when Kristen was interviewed by The Monthly, who called her “one of the East Bay’s most inspiring people,” her family turned it into a running joke…. But with muses constantly asking for her ear, inspiration is everything.
Kristen is the co-host of Heart of the Muse, a monthly creative’s salon that seeks to get to the center of inspiration.
“The stars? Pfff. You get inspired sitting on the pot.” — Kevin to Jayne in I, Uterus
