Tell us a bit about yourself?
I am currently living and working in NYC. I work in fashion (9-5) but my true passion is when I leave the office. I often go for a quick bike ride to unwind then head home to get my creative juices flowing! I have been making art since I can remember but I am always trying new ways to express myself. Currently I love working with leather. I think the texture created when paint is applied to leather is beautiful. It is so unique and always different, I can't get enough of it. Right now I am busy creating mirrors and jewelry using this technique. Outside of making art I love both cooking and eating out. I enjoy weekend getaway trips Upstate, what a way to inspire creativity! A little secret about myself... I may work in fashion- but I still consider going shopping torture!
What's your home like? SMALL. I live in New York City in an apartment on the west side. I have a light blue livingroom, which I filled with all of my white/cream paintings... trying to make it look larger! My favorite part of my apartment is my accent wall in my bedroom- which is a bright coral. It makes the whole room "pop" always brightens my day. My work space in my apartment is a desk/corner area. I am jealous of everyone I see who has a studio space... someday I will also be there!

What inspires you?
My main inspiration is nature. I love all of the natural colors, shapes, and textures seen in organic items. Growing up I always loved the artwork of Arthur Dove and Georgia O'Keeffe. I thnk that some of their influences can be seen in my artwork. I also love creating anything that has texture! I want people to touch my pieces!

Tips for other etsy artists?
Stick with it! Etsy can be frustrating for me- but when I see one of my items sell, and have a happy buyer, it makes it all worth it!
Most important thing you've changed about your shop or products since starting on etsy?
My biggest change was to incorporate jewelry into my shop! WOO HOO! I am still working piece by piece, but I really love it. My leather pieces are my newest addition and I consider them truly wearable art.
