the founder


 As I became older, I always kept to my creative roots working in interior design, retail merchandising, wedding design, and all coming back to my passion as an educator & creative connector.

 I find that a beautiful sketch is the entry point to every great idea + that creativity is our form of community.

When I’m not finding inspiration in the work of top event designers, stylist or on the pages of my favorite love stories, you can find me exploring San Francisco bay area restaurants, shops, window displays, or wandering the streets of a little town I’ve never visited before, often with my husband and two sons in tow.

My passion is connecting and inspiring other creatives through art + design. Like a home cooked meal, I think art + design should be shared.
