Vision Statement

The horizontal stripes reflect my layers, years, experiences and paths in my life. They embody a changing continuum that sometimes includes highlights and sometimes has dark notes. The patterns were also inspired by what the cadence of music or lines of poetry might look like as colors and shapes. After I finished, I researched the diamond shape and found that it is symbolic of illumination and awakening of the mind, body, soul, heart, and spirit to naturally and passionately shine and express one's true talents.
