A: Creative, Compassionate and a little crazy ;-)
Q: What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
A: My world sort of revolves around creating. Art and Fashion is my work, my passion and my hobbies. Everything flows within that. I very much enjoy painting, making jewelry, thrift/vintage shopping. A typical Sunday afternoon with my family would include hobbies such as hiking, going to the lake, live music, cooking something new and creative.
Q: Who inspires you the most in your life?
A: Family for sure. More specifically, my mother was my first inspiration. She is by far the strongest, most positive, caring, selfless person I have ever known. My parents raised me in such a positive supportive environment where my passions were supported and a daily dose of "you are wonderful and can do anything today" was given. My other life inspiration is my husband and daughters. I'm married to someone who understands and supports my crazy creative mind. He challenges me daily and pushes me to be better, his honesty and equally creative/crazy mind is probably what I love most about him. My daughters all push me to do more. Achieve more. To leave a legacy they can be proud of, not just in my body of work but as person. They inspire me to have balance in my life and to be kind.
