    Modern, simple, romantic gifts and homewares

    There isn't anything a little salt water can't fix, whether it's by tears, sweat or the sea. How true that old saying is! I have always enjoyed being in nature, but it wasn't until I learned to sail on the Hudson River that my heart really learned to sing. Quietly slipping along its brackish waters, wind in your hair and filling up your sails - there's really nothing quite like it.

    My love affair with the Hudson River started then and in search of a tattoo design to commemorate my time on its waves, I created the first river silhouette of its slender form. I was so taken with the silhouette's simple beauty, I decided to make a print of it for my wall. Freed from the constraints of political and geographic context, the river silhouette communicates more truth than a map. My river illustrations and personalised maps have been shown in galleries and personal collections all over the world.

    2013-2017 saw me on the move all over the world, working for Etsy and exploring new places in Europe and Asia Pacific. I've learned to love many new rivers and am celebrating each one I visit with a silhouette. Now that I've moved back to the Hudson Valley and returned to my beautiful north river, the Hudson, my collection has expanded into ceramics and other homewares. At the root of every product I create for north river is a sense of connection to place and nature. I hope you enjoy bringing these handmade items into your space as much as I enjoy creating them.
