I love working with different materials and remaking and reimagining old pieces of family jewelry and tag sale finds. When traveling, I love to find bead shops and collect interesting pendants and beads. I love letters and have been a calligrapher since my early teenage years and worked for the fine art publisher, The Meriden Stinehour Press, and also for the reference publisher Grolier. I lived in Japan in my twenties and learned Japanese brushwork and fell in love with the Japanese culture including pottery, fabric, book arts and food. I spend much time in Vermont and Connecticut in my gardens and walking the dirt roads. Thank you for looking at my work and please contact me with any questions or comments.

I lived in Japan and had sliding screens called "shoji" in my small apartment. When I had my first child, I made roller blinds for his room out of Japanese shoji paper. Eventually, all the windows in my house had these blinds made out of different shoji papers...Thank you for your interest in my one-of-kind window treatments!
