FAITH, FAMILY, FRIENDS...
FURNITURE AND FABRICS!
As humorous as that constellation of words may appear together, they do somewhat represent the best loves of my life.
My life, and my work are energized by a keen observation, appreciation and gratitude for the unfathomable Beauty that surrounds us.
Always-present Beauty...the limitless colors, proportions and textures of nature...the faces of those I love...the expansive rainbow colors of the gorgeous vegetables I chop for dinner... so much beauty floods in, that it seems I am compelled to create something beautiful in response.
MY CANVAS IS INTERIOR DESIGN.
As a wife, and mother of six (ranging from ages 7 to 28), I thoroughly enjoy my role as the "architect of beauty" in our home. There is a particular joy in a home where people feel nurtured by a warm and lovely environment.
I have had the pleasure and privilege of having my home's interiors published twice, once in Better Homes and Gardens in April of 2002, and most recently in the Fall 2013 issue of Cottage Style magazine.
