Bloom... born from a SPARK

Inspiration flooded my spirit on my drive home from SPARK.

It must have been a combination of of creating with kindred souls, blissfully gorgeous decorations, the intoxicating lovely music, and the amazing beauty of the country side.

Twice I pulled off of the highway, grabbed my sketchbook and scribbled feverishly bringing the first signs of life to the ideas floating in my imagination for new designs.


As I drove past mountains whose names and history remain mysteries to me, I was immersed in shades of deep forest green, earthy rusted brown, flaming orange and red, and oh the sweet golden yellow of endless fields of wild sunflowers!


This is the first of several designs born that weekend...




Whimsical earthy and unique I LOVE it!

Where do you find your inspiration in life?

It sounds like you had the most amazing time at SPARK! And I am loving the new designs that are a result.

I find inspiration at the oddest moments. In a quite calm or in a loud booming event. It just happens. Unexplainably. And I always try to listen.
