I want to leave behind as much beauty as possible, and I especially love seeing someone else enjoy my creations! I love the colors of nature, bright synthetic colors, too! And, I incorporate them into my original designs. When I am not creating, I am thinking about what my next creation will be! Thank you for your interest in my shop and about me.
