“My hidden talent would be that I love to bake, everyone tells me I should open up my own bakery instead of making clay flowers.”
“I come from a family of artists and architects, so maybe some of that skill somehow was born in me.”
Where do you go to get inspired?
The Rose Garden in San Jose. So many colors and varieties of roses inspire me to create and try new versions in clay. I would have to say too, just walking in the neighborhoods and seeing all the new flowering blossoms from season to season provides inspiration.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a Certified Public Accountant, the only reason being is my best friend's dad was one and he made a lot of money. Then I took accounting and realized it wasn't for me!
Who inspires you to do the work that you do?
Fresh florists and cake artisans who make sugar flowers inspire me. So many of them follow me via social media outlets and are so encouraging and supportive. I'm amazed at what they do and yet, they feel the same way about what I do.
