"Architecture is not a singular art form. It is about collectively creating spaces, and I love working with clients and colleagues to make environments for community."
"My gift is to share my story and the stories of the people, particularly women, who I am creating jewelry for. I am approaching fifty, and I wear my stories proudly: the lessons, the pain, and the love... I want to make people who have felt beaten down at some point in their lives feel powerful and important. I create art for the human condition."
"If you want to have a world-class city, you have to go out and vote with your fork... It’s time that we, as members of this community who can afford to do it, support local food, shop at farmers markets, and go out to eat."
