Muse Monday: Tess McGill played by Melanie Griffith in the film Working Girl (1988). I love this character because of her creative business thinking and her drive to be self-made. Side note: I pretty much design shoes so that no working girl ever has to do what she’s doing here. I wish I could toss her a pair of the Belu pumps! Which zou xou shoes do you think Tess would wear? #zouxouwoman #slowambition #slowliving #creativity #creative #femaleempowerment #creativeconfidence #powerdressing #dressforsuccess #womenwithstyle #workstyle #powershoes #slowfashion #handmade #shoes #studioscenes #refinery29 #fashionista #saynotofastfashion

In an Instagram post from 3.17.17, you wrote that you remind yourself to respect the process of life and art, always. Would you tell us more about what respecting the process of life and art means to you? @maijkah : "I have a quote taped above my desk that reads: ‘Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.’ There is a lot of work that I don’t publish publicly because it is my own personal growth, and sometimes I’ll come back to it with a new idea, and rework it and then I love it. A big part of my process is making work that I hate in order to make work that I love. It’s pushing what is comfortable into something uncomfortable that leads me to something new, and sometimes it’s beautiful." One of my favorite takeaways from the interview with Maja on the blog. Above, a couple more of my favorite shots of the Beia boot & Maja with her work from the studio visit shot by @portablesera #zouxouwoman #slowambition #slowliving #creativity #creative #femaleempowerment #creativeconfidence #powerdressing #dressforsuccess #womenwithstyle #workstyle #powershoes #slowfashion #handmade #shoes #studioscenes #refinery29 #artiststyle #pdxartist #womanartist

A lot of your work is created while on your travels. Tell us about your painting trips-- are they artist residencies or personal journeys to paint? How do you choose a place? @maijkah : "I treat any new environment as an opportunity to experiment with new methods, colors, and compositions. As a self-taught painter I am always dabbling in new ways to paint, and especially enjoy finding ways to manipulate paint to move in different ways on the substrate. I travel to find inspiration in the landscapes and people I encounter, which varies from calmer secluded places like Joseph, OR, to larger invigorating cities like NYC and Berlin." Above, Maja overlooks the park surrounding her studio in Portland & wears the Beia Boot in Mulberry. I love the pop of yellow paired with the deep red of the boots!

What are some techniques you use to remove creative blockages? @maijkah : "Sometimes I’ll paint with my left hand, or with my eyes closed. Every layer tells a different story, and makes the final finished piece unpredictable. I like to work in a way that lends itself to the unknown and taking chances." I loved talking to Maja about her creative process - Read the full interview on the blog! Above, Maja in action in her studio wearing the Loafer in Black Embossed Snake. Also loving them styled with those socks! ❤️ Photos by @portablesera #zouxouwoman #creativity #creative #femaleempowerment #creativeconfidence #powerdressing #officefashion #dressforsuccess #womenwithstyle #workstyle #powershoes #slowfashion #handmade #shoes #studiovisit #studiostyle #artist #painter #pdxartist #womanartist #painterly #studiofashion

NEW in the ZOU XOU WOMAN Series: A studio visit with Portland-based painter & visual designer Maja Dlugolecki @maijkah. Maja started painting a few years ago as a way to heal after experiencing emotional trauma. A practice which began as an emotional & creative outlet has since evolved into a body of work that brings balance and harmony into a space. We talk about connecting with nature & how life and art are processes that require patience. I love interviewing other women about their creative journeys! I find their wisdom and insights so inspiring! Read the full interview via link in bio & tell me what you think! Photos by @portablesera #zouxouwoman Maja is wearing the Beia Boot in Mulberry
