Beauty: Tongue in Cheek

“What inspires me in my day to day life…”

Beauty: Tongue in Cheek

Beauty: Tongue in Cheek

I am inspired by simple objects found at the flea markets in France. To hold something delicate that is over a hundred years old and feel it blush at being rediscovered.

Beauty: Tongue in Cheek

I am inspired by the gift that life generously pours out to us, even when we don’t notice. I have seen that life does not take no for an answer, and it longs for us to dance to our own music.
