Cities, trees, colors, authenticity and street scenes. Parks, picnics, sweets and spa treatments. Disco, fashion, cocktail rings. Daylight, exotic cars and driving. Outdoor markets, Instagram, percussion, prints, textures and sparkle. My husband, family, friends, flowers and togetherness. Art, animals, beautiful objects and thoughtfulness. Being open to possibilities, appreciating and creating beauty from things not obviously beautiful. The creative process. My fashion and lifestyle magazine, VERTICAL—a love letter to Tampa Bay and its local treasures. Seeing the world. Falling in love and sharing it with others.
