hey there how are you?

dreaming in pattern

way waaaaay back in February, which was a life time ago, i had the pleasure of setting foot in Granada.  the Islamic gallery at the Met Museum has been my favorite since it re-opened in 2011.  to see the intricate tile works in person in its palace setting was a dream come true.  with the endless inspirations from the Alhambra, i started playing with some shapes and ideas for the next collection.  by doing so, i'm re-living my experience by going over all the details in my mind.  i am so excited...

It's almost Valentine's Day

my first show of 2019 was at the Whaler Brewery down in South Kingston.  what a blast!  i got to try out some local brew and made some new friends.  it's such a great venue.  have you been there?  if not, let's go!  we can buy each other a drink.
