I love all things vintage, all things kind, thoughtful, mankind-conscious, sustainable, and reminiscent of by-gone days; and I almost forgot tom mention that I love, love, love to crochet! I was born and raised on the busy and bustling Upper East Side of Manhattan, and I now have a store across town on West 79th Street (sorry East-Siders, you know I still love you). At night, I lay my head to rest 100 miles away from the subways and buzzing streets of the city - where moo-ing cows, and hooting owls woo me, and all of my boys to sleep. Here you’ll find a collection of my handmade designs. My aesthetic is informed by my many likes, floral encounters, and travels. I’ve watched women weave works of wonder in Africa; come face to face with the beauty of the spare, in Asia, and learned to crochet my beret so it sits just the right way in Europe. I’ve learned to patiently hook for hours by observing the timeless, gentle gait of the Lancaster Amish, and their love of hand-craft. Here, in my designs, I find ways to lovingly express nuances of what I’ve seen, flowers I’ve smelled, and earth that I have touched.
