Inside every woman is a superhero. To celebrate this, we are amplifying our artist community and giving you an inside look into their creative processes. We’re highlighting photographers, directors, sculptors, painters, and so many other creatives to show you how they wear The Artist while creating their work.
We sat down with Sierra Mayhew, writer & fashion editor, to learn more about her process and what it means to her to be an artist.
What kind of artist are you?
I am a writer. My full-time job as a fashion editor allows me to run wild with this and I also love journaling as a form of self-expression and therapy.
What does it mean to you to be an artist?
Having a role in life that involves creativity and self-expression.
How long have you been doing this?
I've been writing since I was young and always hoped to write a book. Hopefully that dream will come true one day! In college, I started a fashion blog and now I am a full-time fashion editor which involves a lot of writing and I also am an avid fan of journaling.
Was there a class or teacher or person in your life that inspired you or who made an impact in your art?
My dad has his dream job and loves what he does and that always inspired me growing up. He taught me to just focus on doing what I love and let everything fall into place which inspired me to pursue writing full-time.
What are your goals with your art?
I hope to make fashion accessible to all and help everyone find clothing that makes them feel confident. With the book that I'm planning to write I want to focus on empathy and understanding to better improve relationships and the human experience.
