Personal Note
As a writer views their every day in words, I view my life in colors, shapes, and aesthetic, merging every inspiration into my art and design. Photography is also a major part of who I am. I love to capture memories and raw moments, expressing a scene or person with their natural beauty. Along with art, I cannot live without music. Music balances my each and every day, soothing me while inspiring my imagination. I love people and moments. Every adventure gives me new sight and vision in my life, introducing me to new forms of beauty and thought. On a more personal note, I am an Elvis enthusiast, music junkie and coffee cup collector. I also admire people who step outside the norms to exemplify the most authentic versions of themselves such as Joan Jett, David Bowie, and Patti Smith.
