I grew up in the countryside north of Philadelphia, an area rich in history, and known for the simple, elegant architecture and crafts of the Mennonites, Amish, and Quakers. I loved art from a young age, and the pervasiveness of those regional traditions taught me to respect the skill and dedication it takes to make things by hand.

I continue to be inspired by American design history, from antique quilts to Art Deco architecture. After college I became interested in fiber arts, learning to knit and quilt. And over the last few years, I have begun making paper cuttings and Judaica. I cherish the opportunity to help people celebrate what matters to them through each of these forms.
