1. How would you describe your style?
Girly vintage whimsical! I'm an Interior Designer and retired to stay at home with my two littles. That need to create and work with colors was killing me so I dove into this full time. I LOVE pretty much ever style. So you will find I'm quite eclectic! However at the Boutique shows I try to rein it in to a particular theme.
2. What do you feel makes your work unique and truly your own?
Because I'm not stuck on one style I find that makes me a bit unique. My styles are always changing with what inspired me that week or that season.
3. What sort of things inspire you? Where do you look for inspiration?
Honestly it's like a hampster wheel in my head! I can get inspiration from anything! Something as small as a ribbon can excite me and then the wheels start turning. "This ribbon will work perfectly with my stripe skirts and I'll make a shirt to match!" I find myself dancing in Hobby Lobby a lot!
4. When do you feel the most creative?
In the morning with a good latte or at night...I'm a bit of an insomniac.
5. What's the coolest artistic tip you've ever received?
The eye can make a color work. When I was in school to get my degree I bought a wine colored chair with intentions to recover it because my room was more orange, but the chair worked out amazingly to my surprise! A local artist and I were talking about this and she told me that, "the eye can force a color to work even if they don't match perfectly." This is so true and it actually makes things look more interesting if everything is not matchy matchy. I've used this thought in my creations all the time!
