This summer marked the send off of my apprentice of 3 years, Lucy. What a pleasure it's been to have worked alongside her; learning as much as teaching.
My time with her has taught me a new appreciation for even the tiniest of details, that the right question can open up new realms in creating and to not be limited by others perception of you, age or otherwise.
As I venture off to school in Italy, Lucy ventures off to high school and I am so very proud of her!
Over the last three years, she has assisted me with a variety of tasks around the studio as well as shows and market preparations and she has also ideated and executed four projects. From the BLOCK Collection to the Abstract Bags 01, Abstract Bags 02 as well as her final project shown below.
Ironically, for her final, Lucy decided to work with a new material, canvas. And while it has its fair share of challenges along the way, once again she prevailed with excellence!

Every so often, I get the pleasure of working with a local shop to create a capsule collection of leather goods for their customer. This time, I collaborated with Winifred Grace, a lovely boutique tucked away in the West Edgewater/Andersonville neighborhood.
Week 2 of 5 in the month of May, brings us the Column Tote!
During this month, I'll be releasing a new design each week to my email base, exclusively.
In the mood for something new?! Me too.
If you have signed up for emails, you are all set!
I value those who have decided to stay in the loop so I'm doing a series of small-batch, fresh designs for the month of May; one per week!
You will preview them through IG & FB but only able to access them through a shop-able emailed link.
