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.

Living in Europe as a young girl afforded me many fortunate opportunities to travel. My memories of the places I visited, some exotic, some not, and each location’s own unique colors, play a prominent role in inspiring my designs. I still love to travel as much as possible!
