Announcement    Welcome to Asterisk and None. Thanks for stopping by!

I created these towels - replicas of my mother's best and most time-honored recipes as a way to honor her. My hope is that they inspire you to make your own memories over a home-cooked meal.

What’s In a Name?
Legend has it that coming up with first names for my sister and I was hard enough so our parents just didn’t give us middle names. When I came across our birth certificates hers had an * (Asterisk) under the space for the middle name, mine had the word (None). So that’s how the name Asterisk and None came to be!

About

Why Recipe Towels

I grew up in Marin County in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Our family moved houses a lot. We were often in transition - getting used to new surroundings, new neighbors, new routes to school. The one thing that was consistent growing up was my mother's cooking. No matter what, she always had a meal on the table, prepared with love at the end of the day.

More than anything, my mom wanted to write a cookbook. Unfortunately, she passed before this dream came true, but her recipe collection remains a powerful reminder to me of her love of family and a good meal. She'd collect her favorite recipes and write or type them out on blue lined paper kept in a binder that was covered in kitchen wallpaper. That cookbook with the stained pages of favorite recipes became a beloved family treasure and serves as the inspiration for these towels.

I created these towels - replicas of her best and most time-honored recipes as a way to honor her and her spirit. My hope is that they inspire you to make your own memories over a home-cooked meal.

Bon Appetit!

    As an artist I have always been interested in how memories shape our lives and surroundings. I believe that by remembering where we've come from - the people and moments that have shaped us - we can find inspiration.
