About

A little bit about me . . .

I come from a long line of artists. My maternal grandmother was an oil painter. She passed her artistic genes onto both of her children: my mom who is a talented painter and my uncle who is a studio art college professor & professional artist. My paternal grandmother was a serious crafter – and I cherish the handmade Christmas ornaments she made for my twin sister and me.

I’ve been creating since I was a little girl. I would sit on our orange and brown shag 70’s carpet and draw with my crayons and markers for hours and hours. In college I majored in Chemistry, but took as many drawing and painting courses I could fit into my schedule. Even while I was working on my PhD in Chemistry, I painted in what little spare time I could find. While I put my chemistry career on hold to care for my 3 little boys, I still took graphic design courses at RISD. Now that my kids are in school full time, I decided it was time to finally give in to my artistic side, and that’s how I ended up on Etsy.

People are often surprised when they meet someone who has an interest in math & science and art. The scientific part of my brain helps me to engineer a functional iPad Case or a bag that's perfect for a real woman. And the artistic part of my brain helps me to make it pretty. I think it works out pretty well!

My little boys get to practice a little chemistry and math through my work. They sometimes get a chemistry lesson in the kitchen as we dye fabric. We count the strange looks that we get in the grocery store when we are filling our cart with salt for the dying process. I’m drawn to simple clean designs, but my kids wish I was more of a bedazzler – they love sparkle (I’m sure they are pooling their money to buy me a bedazzler for Christmas).

Along with clean minimal designs, I’m drawn to natural fibers like linen, cotton & silk. I use a lot of linen in all of my shops. It’s my favorite fabric. It soaks up dye beautifully, it gets softer with time and more washes. Linen's long fibers makes it more durable than cotton and it has a casual, yet high-end look to it. It’s definitely my go-to fabric for soft home furnishings and for apparel.

I love that Etsy gives me a place to sell my handmade work. There is a wonderful community of artists here. Feels like home.

Payment
I accept PayPal & Direct Checkout. If you live in Pennsylvania, 6% sales tax will be applied to your order.
Shipping
I ship out orders as soon as possible. For already made items, this means that they ship out same day they are ordered or the next day. For custom orders, the time will vary depending upon order volume, but will be described in the listing - the timeframe can often be 2 to 4 weeks, but I try to get your order out as quickly as possible.

All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms. Please remember that international shipping can take up to 2 months (although it usually doesn't take that long at all).
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to LOVE the pillow cover that you buy from me. The last thing I would ever want would be for one of my creations to sit in someone's closet collecting dust. So, if you are not satisfied with your purchase, please convo me within one week of receiving your item. You can then ship it back for a refund.
