A LITTLE ABOUT ME
For the past 14 years, I've been a student of and/or worked in the areas of interior design, high-end Parisian fashion, woodworking, watercolor painting, hospitality and promotion.
I adore the creative & challenging process of working within a medium like wood, watercolor, leather and cowhide, because of their organic, unique nature. While I may be able to duplicate certain characteristics like the cut, overall finished size and/or paper type, I can't duplicate the materials used; this is what I love. Who wants what everyone else can have, anyway? Be unique. Be creative. Be You.
In a simple workshop on the ground of Momma's childhood home, is where my passion for woodworking began. Momma and I would locate just the right pieces from old homes, barns, or wherever we could and work that wood until the rustic became refined! We spent many a precious hour together in that little shed and beneath the trees, creating gorgeous, functional art. When it came time to go to market, Momma was always in by my side...wrapping, packing, hauling and selling.
When designing my handmade, custom journals, I often catch myself referring to different aspects of fashion..."over the shoulder...accessories...seams...stitches", or aspects of woodworking..."live edge...organic...details" and interior design..."fabric folds...detailed finishes...scale". All these creative disciplines have played a valuable part in designing my journals.
Another passion of mine that is very near and dear to my heart, is that of which has anything to do with supporting children, especially those less fortunate and neglected. It is my honor to support #savethechildren and bring more awareness to the horrific human trafficking epidemic in the United States and abroad. I pledge 10% of all profits to be donated to this cause.
Personally and as a business owner, I want to help the less fortunate both financially and inspirationally. It's my dream to one day build a home for the survivors of human trafficking and to create an environment in which these children can flourish and grow to be independent, successful and of course, creative adults.
