Salinger, Johannes Itten, Walt Disney, Michael Jackson, Taryn Simon.

I’m influenced by creative thinkers, non-creative thinkers, relationships, conversations, nature, landscape painting & flipping through a good art book. My favorite websites are Amazon and Google.

I started my LIGHT AS FEATHER design by creating the illustration of the feather. I loved the feather's simple elegance and then I built everything around that. For me the easiest part of the design process is coming up with ideas. The hardest part is deciding which ideas are the best for your design.
