in may we worked with caravents to create two installations for an event celebrating the launch of a new line of beauty products at target. the party was held at a private residence in beverly hills on a beautiful sunny day. we designed and fabricated three chandeliers made from dehydrated citrus slices and an installation of paper parasols for the wall behind the swimming pool.
it’s been a while since i’ve created a little montage of my instagram photos and it’s always so fun seeing them together… i’m currently in the midst of a lavender obsession and got to go to sauvie island lavender farm to pick an assortment of different varieties. such a dream!
on the top row are some recent bramble workshop projects- for caravents, ella moss, and lively running. the waterlily and crab photos were taken on a trip to sequim bay, WA and the bottom two are from pendarvis farm and a farm outside oregon city.

holly of decor8 (one of my favorite blogs!) recently wrote a sweet feature about me and bramble workshop. she writes that “I love collaborating with others and dreaming up and executing creative projects.” i definitely feel the same way. collaborating is absolutely my favorite part of my job- it makes every project so much more fun and inventive.

i’ve been in portland for over two months and wanted to do a post about it but i don’t know where to begin. i’m falling completely in love with the pacific northwest. i’ve moved around a lot (chicago > ohio > san francisco > vermont > los angeles) but this feels like the right place for me (at least for now!)… at some point i’ll write more about my life here and how it has inspired my creative process, but the best way to see what i’m working on is instagram.
this is a photo of hazel on a hike near the coast and it seems emblematic of my experience here so far… at the beginning of a trail heading into the forest, surrounded by lush trees and ferns, feeling like a small part of an enormous world.
i recently completed 10 wall hangings made from cotton crochet thread for the ella moss windows in newport beach and san francisco. the longest wall hangings were 8 feet and we ended up using 12 miles of thread total! to create the “dip-dyed” effect, i lay them down on sheets of plastic and dabbed fabric dye onto the string, adding water to dilute it as i moved towards the top of the hanging. the yellow dye was mixed to match the color of daisy centers because daisies will be another element in the window.
i’ll post photos of the final installation soon!
i’ve been having fun looking back through all of my old proposals and posting some of them here. i thought it might be interesting for people to see my creative process… from inspiration images to sketch to final product.

i just received the final photos of the artemis windows that i designed for the hermès madison avenue store this past fall. what a difference it makes to have window displays professionally photographed! these are perfectly clear with no glare or reflections. beautifully photographed by skot yobauje.
