Unique Artwork For Life's Inspirations

I’m a person who is interested in and inspired by cities and architecture, art and artists, movies and filmmakers, stories and writers, food and chefs, landscapes, nature, home life… domestic items, and my family and friends. I want to explore what it means to be human and how that relates to my interests. Being creative is a way to put my excitement about being inspired into action. I also see that the work captures my gestures, it’s the visual dance of my life. My most recent work involves working with textiles. I love working with patterns, putting different patterns together like a modern quilt. In collage you put things together, you make connections with color, pattern, shape, form, feel… to make something new. Through my work, I can share a part of myself, with the world and also relate to those who inspired me. It’s a celebration of life. It's collageoscope!
