My work is designed to express the celebration and sheer exuberance of joy. I like to depict the more whimsical side of life, showing that joy is found in a variety of everyday thoughts and activities, and that it will manifest itself in every small way possible until it builds up into a total rush of joyous energy. I always feel that this "joyous explosion" that I try to show in my pieces will pass on to the wearers, with the act of wearing the brooches being a confirmation of the right to be joyous
