Welcome to my new and improved site. It will be the home for my artwork, flower arrangements and investigations into the beauty I find in the world around me. This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for some time now so it feels like a small victory to be sitting down and doing it. As I write, I’m sitting under the shade of a pine tree overlooking a valley in Le Marche. The scent of the pine tree under the heat of the Summer sun is for me, one of the things most evocative of late summer in Italy, and late summer is always a time of reflection and preparation for the very different mood of Autumn, waiting just around the corner. That reflective mood helped me realize that living in Italy for the past three year has helped to evolve, inform and inspire my idea of beauty and my creative eye enough that it felt important to start articulating it more precisely. So it seemed like time to start fresh and to start sharing.
My eye is constantly roaming and searching for beauty, not in any one particular form, but rather all possible forms, and I have always had a strong desire to collect and preserve memories and visual experiences as I intend to do here. I hope you can also find some beauty and inspiration in the things I share in this journal.
