Many people think she views the world through rose-colored glasses.
They are wrong. She actually sees it through a kaleidoscope.
“Pops of color and playful patterns excite me.
She is inspired by rhythmic repetition and texture that you just have to touch.
Her art is an expression of who she really is — sometimes soft, sometimes bold, sometimes funky and often carefree. Creating art is a joy for her, and it is her pleasure to share that joy with everyone.
