Creating is my true passion and purpose. It’s what gets me up in the morning, and keeps me up late into the night! Whether I’m crafting a brand, small batch ceramics, candles, running our 1950 Heidelberg Letterpress, or painting, you will almost always find me working up some kind of creative magic!! When I’m not working on a client project, creating, or planning new content for my brand, you will find me squeezing the absolute most out of life with my husband, our two children and two pups (pumpkin and duke), traveling (finding all the quirky little shops), or exploring and photographing this beautiful and mysterious world.
I live for magical little moments that evoke nostalgia, spur of the moment road trips, and warm conversation.
In addition to my design studio and lifestyle blog, I’m the creative director of Ardent Fifth; an artisan studio carrying handcrafted home goods, such as small batch ceramics, organic candles, prints, limited edition artwork, and everything in between, handcrafted in my St. Augustine studio. If you’d like to follow my journey through life and entrepreneurship, stay updated on the launch of my shop + receive semi-sporadic subscriber-only letters, be sure to subscribe to my blog.
