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.

My kitchen windows are filled with sparking Swarovskiâ„¢ crystal prisms and annual Christmas stars and snowflakes. When the sunlight hits them the room is filled with hundreds of beautiful rainbows all over the walls and the floor. Those rainbows always make me smile.
