“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” Rumi
I find beauty everywhere in my surroundings. I’m inspired by what many consider ordinary, looking for hidden moments in the everyday.
I treasure family, community and the small-scale. I cherish nature and discovery. My goal is to inspire a sense of wonder in the world around me.
