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 love many different kinds of flowers and flowering plants, but orchids are by far my favorite. I am constantly amazed by their incredible variety of colors, shapes and sizes, and especially appreciate that they can stay in bloom for so long.
