Japanese movies & animation: from Yasujirō Ozu to Akira Kurosawa to Hayao Miyazaki; I find the movies to be talking about things that I see as most important in life, and animations to be beautiful pieces of art.
food: I am concerned about the experiments with food on a large scale: food with GMO is very widespread, and effects of genetically modified food have not been studied... I choose to be conservative and stick to organic.
my favorite quote:
“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”
— President Thomas Jefferson
About Olga Kasimov
I am a graphic designer, I am a web designer, I am creative,
I am skilled, I am focused, I am inspired...
From the top of my head...
pottery: I find it so satisfying to spend time with clay making pottery: from kneading clay, to centering it on a wheel, to shaping and then trimming, and glazing... it is like mixing clay with love in your hands.
people: different people are like different books that you continuously read, the further you go, the more interesting it becomes.
nature: I am amazed at the beauty of nature: everything in nature is perfect, as opposed to what humans make at times.
