My inspiration comes from a love and appreciation of American folk art. More specifically, the stepped notches of tramp art cigar boxes of the late 1800s (please Google the history of it!).
Folk art has always been considered low brow within the art world. Quotidian, if you will. But what I find makes it so beautiful is how, at its heart, it is our stories made tangible.
The vibrancy of woven blankets, the notches in the woodwork, the hand printed ceramics, they are our family. Our legacy. Given and shared to live on long past our time, saying we were here and we made something beautiful in this world.
