I used to think muse only meant a beautiful naked model that artists needed as an inspiration to create. It can also mean a creative relationship with another person who is a beacon of light in the darkness of doubt. Kista Cook is a creative who seems to inspire everyone she meets to do their best work. She’s an excellent graphic designer and multi-disciplinary artist with firm grounding in the handmade and a backbone of creative support for every project she embraces. The reason IAM Residency still exists because of her skills and encouragement . She is a force of nature.
