We like working with found materials and recycling random things we come across. Images from old books and issues of The New Yorker are favorites. We each have separate styles but also work well together to make another new style all together.

We are currently living in Bloominton, Illinois and spending a lot of time cooking, playing Scrabble and making stuff :) Please let us know what we can do for you!
