The How’s and Why’s
How I do it?
I love the creative process! But it is still a process. Often, it involves quick mood boards, or research —or I may just see a person in the street that inspires an idea for a piece.
Typically, after creating a shell of an idea-- I lay out my materials and see where it takes me. I’ll create combinations on instinct adding and subtracting. The process usually ends with me at my work table surrounded by piles of materials and a singular piece (or many on a good day) that I love. It is the best feeling when I achieve my vision.
What inspires me
Travel, my global experiences, distant cultures and individual style are huge inspirations. Through a lifetime of living and traveling abroad, I am now able to transport wearers to those places with my work. I’m also obsessed with street style and observing how women adorn themselves. It gives me an endless amount of creativity and ideas!
Why I do it?
I love connecting with people and helping women feel confident and magical enough to take on anything. I most love seeing a woman feeling beautiful in her own skin. We need more of that! Finally, I am also inspired by the strength of all of the women around me growing up and those whose paths I cross today. Their stories and journeys constantly reignite a passion for what I do.
