ON A DARKER SIDE. ON A LIGHTER SIDE
(2023)

Life is a balance. It's about finding things that make it beautiful when the room seems so dark and being able to accept the beauty of all the dark spaces that balance out the lighter moments. We choose a room to be in, but there's always going to be a force/energy/God who will even things out. Life is a constant change of moments, good and bad, joyful and terrifying, light and dark. This collection was created to admire when those moments come. It is a reminder that everything in life is so temporary.

WHEN THE SAME SKY IS BLUE (2023)

Places inspire.

 Grey Chicago skies and long windy winters are now replaced by unlimited sun and dry heat that each time when stepping outside feels like a warm hug. This collection is about artistic curiosity, and trying new things while setting in a new landscape. Someone who was so deeply loyal to fifty shades of grey craved colors. "The Same Sky Is So Blue" represents the world within the same person, just like the two places - it is less diverse and less chaotic; it's brighter, warmer, and happier.
