My love affair with print and pattern sprouted at a young age with meditative, mindless doodling. I enjoy discovering patterns and repetition in my everyday surroundings. My inspiration comes from nature and its ability to be functional, unique and beautiful in design and color. I love to travel and learn about history and culture through traditional arts and crafts. I must use my hands and enjoy the act of making. When creating prints, I incorporate multiple techniques like drawing, photography, painting & printmaking to achieve organic, unexpected results.
