The realization of environment is discovered through creating. For me, all energy becomes tangible through art.

As a Stylist Assistant I help create interesting little moments. These are excerpts of day dreams and quick thoughts that become reality through the use of props and wardrobe. Made to believe. 

I am mostly inspired by travel, worn surfaces, mountains, found color schemes, and good people. Through investigations (making) I discover newness. Fresh shapes, an alternative view, empty space, and confusion are all welcome here. Thinking and feeling lead to creating. Art grounds me and allows me to meet the universe with openness.
