Common Silver

I am so grateful you are here!

Common Silver was born in 2015 out of a desire to pursue creative growth in an intentional way. I am inspired by simple, natural design with a hint of elegance. Why Common Silver? Because in my life, I have seen how God is continuously in the process of taking what is common and unrefined in myself and transforming it into something lovely, like polished silver. The creative process seems similar to me. As artists, we are taking common, ordinary materials and using them to create meaning and add beauty to the world.

As a human and an artist, I want to embrace the creative process of refinement and growth. I want to find the treasure in ordinary, everyday, common life; to run after the faint, silvery glimmers of hope, of truth, of beauty, of grace, of God's kingdom on earth. I hope to live a reflective and intentional life, to allow myself to be challenged and refined, both personally and creatively, so that I may increasingly reflect the heart of my Creator.

It is my hope that through this process of creating-- whether in creating details to help you celebrate your marriage, or by designing stationery that helps you communicate care for your loved ones, or by creating custom pieces for your homes and celebratory gatherings-- that together, we can pursue a meaningful life that inspires deeper love and connection with each other.

A little about me: I live in the suburbs of Chicago with my Costa Rican husband, Pablo. When I'm not creating, you can find me working at a local flower shop, drinking a cafecito with Pablo, turning our apartment into a meaningful & peaceful space, or spending time with family & friends.
