inspired by nature, story and forgotten places

At night, when thoughts and ideas seem intent on playing, trying to construct their final form, I imagine they are much like dreams sorting out our day or like children drifting somewhere between imagination and reality. I work with materials from the natural world, they are both truthful and genuine. They hold a history of what they once were, how they grew, even the place and time they came from. I love that I can step within this stream of time and share my ideas using these wonderful materials and then let them travel to new hands to continue their story. I still love toys; trees and the living things that grow wild; histories, origins, storybooks, picture books and fairy tales of all kind; rocks, mountains, maps and terrain; typography, and ideas turned upside-down; folk hands, hand-stitching, patterns, textures, color and honest traditions that run deep; and all the other friendly playful things that function or are simply made to bring joy.

I am so thrilled to be an Etsy Featured Artist:

Frequently asked questions

Authenticity and process

I believe authenticity is important in the ideas and materials I work with. The truthfulness of the design and natural materials gives power both to the object and our imagination. All my work is handmade one at time by my own hands created start to finish in the my studio workshop located in a small mountain town in Southern NH. I use mostly native, sustainably harvested wood otherwise beautiful reclaimed hard wood boards and have chosen all materials very carefully. All finishes and color used are 100% non-toxic and are either AP Certified nontoxic or food-grade contact safe.
