Picture it. Rural Wisconsin. Many years ago. A designer was born (me!). I took piano lessons, studied French, taught myself how to sew, drew floor plans of elaborate mansions, and constantly sought to create beauty in the world.
Fast forward to college at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. With the backdrop of an urban chaos, I refined and honed my skills. Sketching, drafting patterns, arranging color palettes. I fell in love with all things handmade, opting to sew, embroider and even bead by hand instead of by machine. An obsession was born.
After having designed, developed, sourced and produced a wide range of products for Martha Stewart Living, Ralph Lauren and C. Wonder, I launched my own line of heirloom quality, handmade, handcrafted items for the home.
