I enjoy contrast: between old and new, bold and dark paired with light and airy, sleek lines with soft edges. I love things with a story and history, but I'm also excited by unexpected, innovative discoveries. I collect antique trading beads and skeleton keys; I'm obsessed with Helvetica and midcentury modern chairs. When it comes to art choices, I'm drawn by an emotional response, wherein tribal markings can read as art as easily as a brush stroke by Cezanne.
