About

Sketching the Story…

Wanderlust and a passion for design is a gift inherited since I was a child living in New Jersey with my grandparents, growing up in a house they built by hand.

Later on, Florida beckoned, where my stepfather, an architect, helped create “planned community living” for the giant east coast firm of Levitt & Sons. We all delighted in spending weekends searching out new home construction sites. By countless hours spent exploring architecture and watching start-to-finish the model homes, landscaped and with interiors furnished, I grasped the full arc of the design process.

Next up were my California years, in high-school, already an avid and expert seamstress, making most of my own clothes and redesigning vintage clothes, setting a personal fashion style that stood apart from the crowd. That runs in the family too: my grandmother made all my clothes, my great grandmother sewed for Shirley Temple at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California.

As a young adult, I forged a design style inspired by what could be done with what was near at hand. For my first apartment and the others to follow, I created slipcovers, pillows and curtains, and also discovered the art of cultivating found objects. Tired-out furniture from family, thrift shop finds, flea markets and even humble roadside castoffs were reclaimed, renewed, then reimagined.

It’s been my good fortune over the years to voyage on… to Hawaii, Asia, Europe, New England, among many ports of call... They are the maps and charts, the blueprints and drawings, of my life. I share these snapshots, happily still dreaming away, still sketching the story…
