"I never thought as myself as the artist type. I did not go to art school and study painting or drawing techniques and mediums. I studied classic literature. My love for classic literature led to a pursuit and collection of antique books. It was on these treasure hunts through dusty bookshelves that I discovered the beauty of vintage atlases and maps. I could see the stories they told and the memories they could evoke. I wanted to display my stories and memories of the places I had been or where I wanted to go in my home where I could see them everyday.
Over time I learned techniques and developed processes for creating products for my home that are both functional and beautiful. I began to explore colors, moods, and textures, and I combined these elements with the memories that the maps evoke to create items that have a natural place in my home to be cherished forever.
These items tell the story of who I am and where I’ve been, and I would love to help you create your own cherished pieces."
