“I believe an active imagination is the start of all possibilities. Can you dream it?
With gratitude I dive into each project, finding the unique intimacy it takes to bring your inspirations to life. Based in Portland, Oregon, my work has allowed me to nourish a blooming though undervalued creative community. My vision is that my participation in creating genuine connections and sharing my passion for my work will have a domino effect. Ideas get bigger, community gets stronger, and we step into our collective power.” - Blossom
