In the Studio
My haven. Here, I'm at peace, surrounded by ink, paint, music... and wrapped so warmly by the light I love...
Both of my design studios are special places where I can find the solitude I crave, surrounded by an abundance of inspiration (Trees and city life to the North… Saltwater and coastal colors to the South). Quiet spaces which allow me the freedom to design, to paint, to create, to work, to think… and to honor my creative self and all that she encompasses.
I am surrounded by beautiful mementos... dog eared books of poetry, seashells from the coastline of Scotland, soft pillows, vintage pottery, sand dollars, a beloved orchid that magically keeps blooming, handwritten notes, photographs, sketches and drawings, paintings and books... Sentimental, these things speak to me and bring me much joy. The Muse is usually close at hand and for that, I am grateful. Those who are dear to me and who bring beauty close to my life are represented here in this feel good space. The energy is palpable the moment I sit at my desk.
I enjoy the unique diversity of design work that each client and licensee brings my way each day. There is a sense of immense pride in creating quality products and in knowing I am building something beautiful, tangible and authentic.
Whether I am painting for my own pleasure or designing for my growing list of art licensing clients, my focus remains steady; to create and design exceptional art and timeless collections that are softly infused with beauty and grace.
