I am a native Oregonian and grew up on a small family farm outside of Corvallis. I was a rambunctious child but if you gave me some paper and crayons I was quietly entertained for a good hour.
Growing up I had dreams of living abroad or
in a big city and I am lucky to have done both.
I lived in Toyama, Japan for a few years and in NY City. I love all the color, texture and creativity
found in all of the places I have lived.
I especially fell in love with Japanese Decorative Paper and while in NY
I took some book binding classes.
would design just to unwind and I would give my creations away to friends and
family. One day a friend suggested I
open a shop on Etsy and that is how I got started.
My main job is as a research assistant providing information to help teachers. I also work for my husband prepping canvases and working on his online site – to premier soon. My other interests are; movies, hiking, beach combing and growing flowers in the garden.
I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I enjoy creating them. The designs for my cards, journal covers and gift tags have a rustic, homemade feel that all things made by hand have. My items are meant to be used and shared, by doing so I hope they will have a life of their own.

I love everything I create. If I don’t love it I won’t sell it. All of my creations have different origins and inspiration, no two were created in exactly the same way. One of my earliest creations is a simple design inspired by my time in Japan.
