What is your creative inspiration?
My biggest creative inspiration is Scandinavian design—the combination of form + function that creates delight in the everyday. I love that design is part of the culture in the Scandinavian countries, to help make everyone's lives easier, more beautiful, and more enjoyable.
Who do you love to work with?
Creative spirits like you!! I believe that everyone has their own unique brand of creativity, and that each of those brands are valuable to the world. Here at Delightful Things, I strive to provide an open and accepting environment for all individuals across the creative and human spectrum.
What do you do when you're not creating?
When away from my studio, I can be found in the vegetable garden or in the forest, with my partners-in-adventure—golden puppy Stella Blue, and handsome human Brian.
