Grew up ping ponging between 350 days of sun in the mile high state and the highways of So-Cal and managed to escape becoming a ski-bunny or a valley girl. Her mother is a fiber artist, her grandmother a talented portraitist and her grandfather an architect. After studying art and running around Chicago’s art scene- jazz at the Velvet Lounge, art parties and screen printing, she departed for graduate studies in architecture. Emerging to the light of day after three years of study and travel to Finland, Greece, Italy, Spain and England, she migrated north from the Gateway City back to Chicago. Fixations include graffiti, machines, robots, metal, cakes, sushi, Hot Doug’s and tamales.

Growing up in historic and proper "Steal Magnolia'ish" Virginia and only leaving to venture elsewhere for graduate school (with the exception of a short tour of Europe), she found herself somewhat of a black sheep seeking other (to continue with the animal analogies) birds of a feather. This directed her path to Saint Louis, Missouri where she found a new flock and fell in love with many the people and places in the ‘Lou’ and then around the world in her travels. Feeding off her intense love of extremes from Carlo Scarpa to Zaha Hadid, minimal white boxes, patterned wallpaper, and gaudy over-the-top European antiques she continues to fine t-une her design style. After spending a few sunny years in Hawaii she is now back to the cold of Virginia. She hopes to escape and return to Argentina someday where she can walk the Recoleta cemetery whenever she desires.
