FAMILY & FRIENDS & LAUGHTER:I am constantly inspired by the people that I am lucky enough to have around me. My family & my friends are always making me laugh, think and grow. Their accomplishments, creativity, braveness, intelligence and the way they experience the world around them is amazing. I treat our time together as a time to learn while having fun. I have learned more from them than in any other arena of my life.
Even though I always design with a clean crisp style, I am in love with texture of any kind. I think the reason I lean toward clean and modern designs is because I love the way they exist in this world full of glorious textures.
NATURE:Nature is one of those things that you can choose to ignore, or choose to be enamored by. I am in awe of nature and all the many iterations of it. Nature teaches us to open our idea of how we classify stuff. We all know what a leaf is, but there are so many shapes & colors of them that is pushes the idea of what a leaf can be. I try to allow nature to remind me to push myself and open up my ideas of what I can be and how things can look.
My favorite thing about traveling, other than getting to see nature it all it's glory is learning how different & alike we all are. Different cultures are so interesting and inspiring in how they differ from myself, but when you really step back, we're all so similar and I take comfort in that thought.
