As a Tai Chi instructor and practitioner, I enjoy drawing from nature. The elements of the earth, such as clay, glass, metal, wood, and water are alluring to me. I find the simple beauty of nature to be energetic, captivating and timeless. Nature is one of our greatest teachers and I enjoy learning how to express that in the pieces I create.
With each changing season, our attraction to that time of the year mirrors our mindset. A feeling of adornment to that time stirs something in all of us. I strive to be inspired as mI continue my line of different materials each season and hope something in my creations in spire and captivates the inner energy (Chi) in you.
An artist and friend once told me, "Make what you like, and would want to wear yourself, so that your heart is always in your creations."
