I see the world in simple shapes and powerful colors. I see patterns. Whether as a print designer, a graphic designer, a textile designer, or a rug designer, I take a minimalist approach to using color, shape and form. My work has been called daring, bold, whimsical and happy, and is inspired by any simple shape, like a bird’s foot imprinted in the sand.
