About

New Beginnings

Ever since I was a little I have had a love affair with stationary. One of my favorite stationary shops is in Italy. I stumbled up on it when I was lost walking the streets of Rome. There were no windows just a tiny little sign out front of the open arched shaped door. I had to duck my head as I entered through and I'm no giant by any means. The shop was a small with beautiful handcrafted shelves and tables in rich tones of natural wood. Every table and shelf was covered with beautifully handcrafted stationary and journals. All designed and crafted there in their shop a skill that was handed down through generations. I still have the stationary I purchased that day and I have yet to use it.

For the last 10 years I have transitioned from being an interior designer, to graphic designer, to creative director and last but not least a marketing executive. I have recently taken a sabbatical from my corporate career to pursue other interests one of them being my love affair with stationary. So now, I have a small home based digital and fine art design studio nestled in the heart of Triad North Carolina.

A COUPLE OF THINGS ABOUT ME
.....................................................................................................................................

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?
White, it reflects all the colors visible to the naked eye.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PAST TIME WHEN YOUR NOT CREATING?
When I am not in my studio, you will find me enjoying time with my husband and our 2 rescue dogs.

WHAT KIND OF DOGS DO YOU HAVE?
We have one black lab mix, she is 14 years old, and we have on yellow lab mix, he is 7 years old.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHILDHOOD MEMORY?
Learning how to ride my bike without training wheels with my dad. It was an exciting yet traumatic experience. If I only new then what challenges life would hand me today, I probably would not have been so scared.

DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL FOR GRAPHIC DESIGN?
Yes and no. I started out majoring in graphic design and fine arts. I then studied architecture for a couple of years and finely graduated with an interior design degree.

DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER HIDDEN TALENTS?
Yes, I am a regular modern day Martha Stewart/Julia Child. I was in every 4-H club under the sun as a child. I am proud to say I am an accomplished seamstress, culinary cook and that's just to name a few.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD?
Homemade Spaghetti
