I am inspired by visions of beauty all over the world, from striking real life Indian goddesses amidst stunning temples,
to prayer flags lining paths through remote villages in Nepal.
I am inspired by the love of life and welcoming attitude of people everywhere I go, from the kindness of countless strangers across the globe, who have cooked me delicious meals, performed impromptu traditional dances, and shared the joy of singing and playing music together…
… to the lovingly cultivated celebration of nature that is my parents garden.
I am reassured to find that wherever I travel in the world, despite the cultural differences, people all have the same underlying appreciation for, and desire to celebrate and honour, this precious life. From elaborate man made religious buildings with a hint of nature…
to the more subtle yet absolutely awe inspiring Gergeti Trinity Church, Georgia, dwarfed by the dramatic landscape that surrounds it.
I take pieces of these people, places and things with me and weave them into the wonderland of my imagination. I hope that the things I create will inspire joy in those around me, just like the things that inspire me touch my own heart.
