ARTIST STATEMENT 

MY INSPIRATION COMES FROM CONNECTIONS WITH SPECIAL PEOPLE THAT HAVE TOUCHED MY LIFE AND MY HEART, PLACES THAT HAVE INTRIGUED ME IN MY TRAVELS, AND THINGS THAT HAVE CAUGHT MY EYE IN NATURE AND THE WORLD AROUND ME.

MY BACKGROUND IN GRAPHIC DESIGN HAS INFLUENCED THE VISION AND ULTIMATELY THE FORM AND FLOW OF MANY OF MY PIECES. MY WORK IS EXPRESSED IN CLEAN, SIMPLE LINES, ENHANCED WITH ORGANIC DETAILS AND TEXTURE.

MY INTENTION IS TO CREATE A BOLD STATEMENT IN EVERY ONE OF MY PIECES THAT RESONATES WITH THE WEARER, AND ELICITS A SENSE OF CONFIDENCE, COMFORT AND CHARM.
