A year ago, feeling more estranged than ever from my creative life and myself as an artist, I moved to Buffalo to try to find it. The harder I looked for it, the more elusive it became. And so I did what I love to do — I ran. I ran a lot. I danced. I did yoga. I boxed. And in doing these things, in focusing on my own wellness above all else, I found a way back in to a creative side of me I thought may have packed up for good. I’m a big, learned proponent of healthy living, following your personal joy and curiosity, and being your own fiercest backer. I’m a cat person and my designs reflect that along with my taste in vintage fashion, my secret relentless romanticism in looking at the world, and a constant desire for, above all else, magic.
