"I am inspired by travel, nature, color, and pattern. I develop my designs by reaching into the past, recreating the existing, and tying together what is beautiful, functional, and timeless. The result is a design that is innovative, custom, and tells a story which is unique with every client.
I live in a world of color and pattern. I encourage my clients to color outside of the lines and push the boundaries of creativity."
