"I draw my inspiration from multiple aspects of life: relationships, motherhood, nature, femininity, spirituality, etc. Comparable to nature, I aspire for each of my pieces to be unique and reflect the reality of the natural world where nothing is an exact duplicate. Through my art is how I feel my biggest connection with others and I put my heart and soul into every piece. "
