I collect vintage (Victorian to Deco to 30's, 40's and 50's) costume jewelry, old dishware, dried nature and kimono swatches for pattern inspiration. My favorite musicians are Todd Rundgren, the Beatles, Cream, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Traffic, Weezer, New Order, Television, Hall & Oates, the Byrds, The Pursuit of Happiness, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Laura Nyro, Brent Bourgeois, Robert Palmer, Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention, Jean-Luc Ponty, Jefferson Airplane, the Yardbirds, CSNY, Eagles, Tom Petty, David Bowie and the Lemon Twigs. I enjoy going to any museum or flea market for design inspiration. I also have a small collection of India blocks for printing. I like dogs more than cats, (although I do have 3 cats), also like to bowl and sew (not at the same time.)
