I am inspired by the abundance of contrasting beauty that surrounds me. From the most active volcano in the world, spewing molten red lava into the sea, to the majestic mountain top, Mauna Kea, covered in a mantle of white snow. In between, there’s so much lush, healing green and I am out in it, on the road running or biking several times a week. Sometimes, I find roadside treasures. I stop to stash or carry the item along the route, imagining how it may be re-purposed and integrated with the Palm cloth I collect and design.
