About

Infused with creative spirit . . .

In the mythical land of New Jersey — set between the vibrant winds and deep waters of the Delaware River and the Atlantic Ocean — I design and sew modern fabric goods. The name jerseymurmurs comes from my location and the belief that prayer flags (and our petitions) — and any creative venture — continuously produce a low, soft sound — a murmur, sending energy out to the universe.

I am the daughter of an Engineer and an Artist. Both my grandmothers were experts at the Peaceful Arts: sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, cooking. I am always happiest when making things.

Some of the people whose work I admire: Sonia Delaunay, Raoul Dufy, Bruno Munari, Alan Fletcher, Josef & Annelise Albers, Mama Francesca & Bunky Simone.

I love this quote from Deng Ming-Dao: “If you have a good idea, use it so that you will not only accomplish something, but so that you can make room for new ones to flow into you.” I'm always trying to make room for the new ideas . . .

    I am a Technical Writer & Graphic Designer and through the wonders of modern technology I have melded these skills with my love of textiles. I am intrigued by the idea of modern prayer flags emblazoned with our own sacred words and symbols.
