Stories define us. Beauty is a story I need to create, to share and to exist with. My current work is inspired by beautiful horizons that I have come upon in my life and travels.

I have incorporated a butterfly reflecting a recent personal experience. The message in butterflies usually means that anything you do, however how small or how unimportant it may seem at the time, each thing you do causes a major ripple effect. To Native Americans, the butterfly is a symbol of change, joy and color. The exquisite butterfly was considered a miracle of transformation and resurrection. In the Old World, the connotation was negative; the butterfly was thought to be the spirit of the dead.
