Welcome to the createaerie, my name for a lifestyle that fuels me each and every day.


I embarked upon this lifestyle as a young girl growing up near the shores of eastern Long Island, NY, doing projects of the cut, paste, sew and grow genre.  Refined interpretations of these childhood pastimes, along with interior design, fine art and horticultural studies at The New School, NY, New York Botanical Garden and Suffolk County Community College are the foundation for which my twenty plus year career was built upon.  Elegant, yet relaxed and playful attributes resonate in all my works, and I am often inclined to add a resourceful element to that complementary mix.


I’m delighted that you are here.  Take a look at my work, then pop on over to my blog to find out what creative mess I may be making at the moment.



Life is a garden; enjoy the stroll.
