About

While I enjoy long walks on a beach and star-gazing at high elevations, my creative work allows me the freedom of expression. Through my creative work I have an arena to express myself in ways more elusive in my everyday life. Bold colors, textures, patterns often come out in my work (much more than in my wardrobe). This creative freedom keeps my heart open and my soul rejuvenated.

My current work has grown from the sum of my life experiences. I enjoy experiencing all sorts of different things – culturally, musically, culinarily, everything. My exposure to different cultures, through my travels and various life and work experiences, gives me a fertile foundation to create from. I use motifs and ideas from many different cultures in my work as well as borrowing images and themes from nature herself.

My hope is that something in my work touches another soul and makes them giggle, smile, laugh and maybe even cry (tears of joy).
