A Little About Me and What I Do :)

”The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.” -- Picasso.

About me: Mostly, I love to create. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys and they are my constant inspiration and the loves of my life.

I'm inspired by nature; light, shadow, color—by the sound of the wind in the trees or the beauty of a sunset or dancing dappled shade. Moonlight on the water, or shining on my floor through an open window. The magical glow of candlelight.

I love fairies and mermaids and mythology and fairytales. Beautiful vintage fabrics and trims—silks, velvets, laces, ribbons. Dried flowers. Anything victorian. The Renaissance. All things gypsy and bohemian. The Pre-Raphaelites and Art Nouveau.

I love music and I love to dance. I love to dress up, and I love to pretend. I don't think I will ever lose my childlike enthusiasm for life, or my belief that anything is possible.

All of these I suppose find their way either directly or indirectly into my art, and to really get an idea of me, I suppose that is what I should share with you here, for it's definitely where my soul finds it's expression :)
