It all started on a cold winter's day...

...with a collection of accumulated colored pencils, scraps of paper and a bored little girl. 

I didn’t grow up dreaming to be an artist but art has always been just under the surface in each step of my life – from the advertising industry to designing my own fabric lines. Painting and drawing is now central to my life.
