My inspirations come from a wide variety of sources: a walk in the woods on a crisp autumn day or on the beach on a hot, hazy summer day; a piece of exquisite fabric; a painting; an old photograph; a flower or a bird. The source may vary but the important presence of color and beauty never does.

I was first introduced to Caran d’Ache© colored pencils when I was nine years old and moved with my family to Geneva, Switzerland. I have used them exclusively since then because of their range of over 250 colors and their incomparable quality. Just opening a new box is a thrill.
