Visual Influences

Windows, architecture, museum displays, window displays, fashion, reflections, glistening gold, inky warm blues, brilliant turquoises, deep rich reds, russets and browns. A rich tapestry of history waiting to tell its story and share its drama and excitement visually and metaphorically.
