Nature, geysers, the night sky, birds and happy moments of being alive inspire me.
Over the years I have focused on painting birds. I love their shapes and colors. I like showing relationships in the pictures, or birds mirroring each other. I like showing patterns and families!
I draw with colors and new shapes from my imagination. I paint them on the purses I sew. I use leaf patterns for backgrounds or for earrings. I love going and finding the leaves right outside my studio.
It makes me feel calm to paint and sew and do jewelry. I like doing detailed work with intricate designs. I choose to make art because it's peaceful, loving, and magical.
YES! (arms raised to the sky with enthusiasm)!
