Whenever I travel to a new place, I try to pick up a piece of art or an object from that place and bring it home to remind me and inspire me of that special trip. Over the years, the house has been filled with these sacred objects of creativity and inspiration. Each room I step into has a different memory of a time and a place in my life that I found significant. Each color projects a tapestry of emotions, reflections and stories that usually are only meaningful to me. That is why I seek out these objects of inspiration. They may not be worth a lot of money but to me they are priceless.
