It seems like I have a hard time "settling" with just one medium, but really I enjoy trying out different things and seeing what I come up with.

My designs are my own, I research different culture's designs, and what is pleasing to my eye. I am always swayed by beachy things or my mountains. I have always loved sayings that get to the heart and soul of things.

I have recently been working on several custom projects and am always open to collaborating on projects.
