Meet the Author

I am VAI, a lover of all things artistic.

Vivid colors, music, nature, fantasy, each of these has been a large inspiration to my designs and art. I love the idea of movement and unique, individualistic pieces.

I have lived in a variety of places throughout my life, from the warm temperatures of Florida to the arctic temps of Alaskan's winters. Each of the environments I have experienced have helped to develop my imagination and my love for fantasy. Especially, the dramatic colors found in the valley's of Glacier National Park.

Sharing my art and music with others has always been a desire of mine, and I have always loved to help people to express their own style and design. To do this I have shared some of my more versatile designs, and each has a variety of possible outcomes.

I not only like to help others develop their own art, but showcase my own. These pieces can come in a variety of forms from paintings to jewelry. I hope everyone enjoys the pieces of creativity I want to share.
