How do I get to the place in life where I’m meant to be? Will I know it when I get there? What inspires me and gets me out of bed every morning? Like so many of you, it took time for me to find the answers to these important questions.
My father was an artist, and he found expression in many mediums. Seeing him work and create planted the seeds of creativity within my brain, they just lay dormant for a long time. Like many people, I kept that creativity buried in order to focus on a more conventional career. After 20 years in a corporate world I knew I never belonged in, I let that long buried idea of living a creative life grow until it blossomed into an irresistible calling. I held my breath and took that scary leap of faith out of the corporate world, and took my passion for jewelry design to a professional level.
The peace and tranquility of the natural world serves to soothe and inspire. With nature as my guide, there is never a shortage of ideas to motivate and energize my hands to create. Natural inspirations seem to breathe life into my soul, and in return my designs seem to take on a life of their own. They are a part of nature as well as a part of me.
What more can you give to people than sharing a part of you? I want to share my love of nature and jewelry because it’s a part of who I am. I want to share a piece of me with the world. I want to help make the world a little more beautiful one piece of art at a time. I want to pay forward the things that soothe my soul and inspire my mind in hopes that it will do the same for you. I want to inspire you to find your best place in life, to live your dream, to love what you do.
