When did you start letterpress printing?:
What inspires you?:
I’m inspired by Southern culture and have a strong appreciation for the traditions and sincerity of yesteryear. As one who appreciates kindness and thoughtful gestures, I frown upon the constant search for what is merely cheap and convenient. I love patterns, colors, and embroidery from India. A practicing yogi, I try to see the divine in the world around me. I support the slow foods & local foods movement; I’m eager to grow roses and tend a vegetable garden. I love live music!
