I love dogs!! I love cats!! I love art!! This is the best design project I have ever had! I take my inspiration from all the different places I have lived and loved. I grew up all over the world, mostly USA but some outside the USA. After college at UNCC I once again fell into traveling and living all over. I became a flight attendant for one of the major US airlines. So to tell the truth there are not many cultures or places I have not experienced, but through it all I, by choice, call Charlotte, NC my home although I now live in Myrtle Beach, SC. I have two dogs right now. Bella - South African Mastiff/Great Dane mix, and Buddha - Bullmastiff. All shelter dogs.
