Salida, United States

An independent artist and designer that creates products that invite joy and whimsy. Hangs out in Salida, Colorado.

Number one priority: Adding a little joy to the world.

I know that I can be a run-on-sentence when I talk about birds, the environment and native plants. Why not have a sustainable future?

I know that if I don’t go outside everyday into the wild, the uninhabited and the open, I will go nuts.

I know my creativity sparkles when I hike into the wild.
Hiking is my tool: to pay attention, to wonder, to get curious.
What’s out there in the wild?

I know I am a mono-mind. Only one thing can happen at a time. Thanks for that. Multi- tasking sucks, gets in the way of doing the work, designing that next creative thingy.

I know I love to cut rubber stamps, make a mess and forget to clean it up. There are more creative things on the table, so why clean it up. Run with the ideas.I know I throw too much stuff on the floor. It is in creativity’s way and needs to be gone. Sweep once a day…maybe.

I know that my biggest fear – the thing that nags me and won’t get out my brain– is not fulfilling my own potential. Come on in fear. You can come on my journey, poking at me, but together we are on this creative path together.

And, finally?

Turn up the rock and roll. Drink coffee. Make a mess. Time is a wasting. Dawdling,second-guessing is just a big fat waste of time. Don’t like the work. Throw it onthe floor and sweep it up later. Or did those crap pieces teaches me something?

Birds matter. May all your trees shelter birds.
