Quality and consistency are very important to me, and I strive to continually challenge myself to learn more and improve my techniques. What inspires me? Well, nature is the biggest source, since it is right there on my doorstep every morning to greet me. Besides the obvious places like architecture and fashion, I see cables in trees, swirls in rivers, curves in flowers, all of which give me new ideas.

Currently I live in the Blue Ridge mountains in Western North Carolina with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet Corgidor, in a beautiful place that lets my soul breathe.
