About

Little by little we whittle our way.

Well then. Here you are. Here we are. How did that happen?

I have been on the winding path and it just keeps doggone winding doesn't it? Started my years in Fairport, NY outside Rochester, went to high school in inner city Chicago and split college between Baltimore and Maine. I went from studying art to marine sciences (whale studies) to finally settle in on studying pollinators and plants. Pollinator ecology if you will. So now I'm a professional gardener. Makes sense, seeing as my mother, her mother (rip Nanny) and my sister all have bright green thumbs.

All you REALLY need to know about me is that I wish I could breathe underwater. I also wish it wasn't so dangerous to stand in the middle of a meadow in a thunderstorm, and that fresh homegrown vegetables were a form of currency.

More pertinent to the subject at hand, I wish more of the world still valued penmanship and handwritten journals, letters, lists, venn diagrams, love notes, etc. Help me help you get back to those good habits. Get sketching again. Make your grocery list in ink. Start taking notes for that book you keep saying you're going to write. It's not going to write itself and a good notebook, journal or sketchbook is like fertilizer. It helps. I swear it. Pinky promise.

Tally ho!
