The Lilipad Story

I design and create from my brand new working studio and storefront in a warehouse in downtown Syracuse and am a mother to two fabulously energetic kids, Lili and Simon.

After the birth of my daughter Lili, I rediscovered my love of sewing and designing beautiful handcrafted items. I named my company for my little bundle and had a logo designed of a whimsical girl skipping lily pads. Turns out it was a fantastically accurate portrait of my 5 year old to come!

3 years ago I was on maternity leave and started this little adventure as a hobby. Soon after, I left my PhD in molecular biology to create full time and have the freedom to be home with my son. Many bags later I am more fulfulled and amazed at the successes I have enjoyed doing something I love. It is both challenging and so beautiful having my little guy follow me around the studio as I work. My latest stop on the journey is here and Etsy and now I can't get enough! Thanks for checking out Lilipad!
