THERE’s ALWAYS ONE part of every story that’s never told, and yet it’s the most intriguing.
It’s the enigma constantly starring you in the face only to be revealed when you
slow down and read between the lines.
In a not so distant past, my world consisted of early morning mad dashes to the
office, with a coffee & blackberry in one hand and a croissant in the other. Only
to be greeted with a stack of paperwork, emails to be returned, phone calls to be
made and schedule full of meetings. It was crazy and brilliant and I loved every
moment. And then one day fate stepped in and everything changed.
I wish I could say I’ve always known what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I’m
not surprised I landed here. With a family tree filled with some of the most lively,
clever, creative souls you’ll ever meet, I believe my destiny was set from the get
go. And even though I majored in Design at the University of Minnesota and then later
Interior Design at Suffolk University’s NESAD, my God-given talents were always treated
as a side gig.
So, in the spirit of those magical movie moment take-two opportunities, I kicked
off my corporate stilettos, slipped into my favorite pair of Chuck Taylor All Stars
and set off on a new adventure.
If I had to choose one word that best describesmy style, it would be symbolic.
There are always two stories intertwined into one; the obvious and the untold. After
studying Jan van Eyck’s Arnolfini Portrait, I’ve always been fascinated with the
subtle use of symbolic undertones in art & design and have tried to incorporate those
same principals into my ownwork. Because to me, the meaning behind the silent truth
is what truly keeps life exciting.
