Thank you so much for sending in all of these beautiful stories and ancedotes of early artistic inspiration. This series will now go live with a new artist every Monday, and every Thursday.

Today, we are treated to some of the first creative memories of Cate, the artist behind silverridgestudio, whose work was recently featured in Lucky Magazine. She says her current inspiration "comes from many places. Ealing Studios, French and Italian Cinema, along with music, theatre and dance." Thank you, Cate, for sharing with us what some of your earliest creative sparks were.
"My first memory of drawing was at my Grandparents. I was fascinated with an architecture book that belonged to my Granddad. I spent most weekends staying with them so I used to copy pictures of windows and doors for hours out of that book."
Here are some photos from Cate's busy studio, which is in the garden area of her L.A. home.
