Since I was a young girl, I have always needed a creative outlet to express myself. Whether it is through painting, playing the piano and guitar, decorating my home, or graphic designing, artistic expression brings me much fulfillment. I have been designing for the craft industry since 1999. Much of my inspiration comes from nature, music, and architecture.
I currently live on an amazing little circle in Salt Lake City, Utah. Recently I converted my garage into my dream office overlooking the Wasatch Mountains to the East, and amazing sunsets to the West. When I am not designing, I love being out with my 4 children…3 growing boys and 1 little girl. Some of my other interests include exercising outdoors, playing the piano and guitar, and I love all sorts of music genres. I have some sort of affinity to the singer songwriters of the 70s…maybe because it is the decade of my birth. Music is a big part of my inspiration. A great music playlist and a beverage of choice (Diet Coke & Crystal Light are my top favs!) is an absolute must while I design.
One thing I have always hoped my designs will inspire a creativity in others. I believe we all have a creative spark within us, waiting to be displayed. Sometimes we design paper and fabric, sometimes we sew a quilt that we share with someone, sometimes we need to be creative in our friendships and relationships with others. If we all share our unique creativity with one another, what a great inspiring world we would live in.
