I finally have a new website!

This is the first time I’ve attempted to collect all of my projects and practices into one site, and man, it was a big job to make sense of all these things. The big challenge was to organize all the personal projects and art pieces while creating a portfolio of professional work, freelance work, 4 years of ¬†archived images from a business and then some indulgences like the Library Page….There are still plenty of edits to make and things to tweak, but check it out and let me know what you think!

A big thanks to Chen Pollina, the industrious saint who designed the website. In a blink, he was finished and somehow maintained a zen-like response to my 200th email.

Immense gratitude!

Fresh Start

Posted on April 5, 2013

It’s officially Spring in the Pacific Northwest. Lots of changes in the early months of 2013. For those of you who followed the blog I’ve kept for the past 4+ years plainMADE Studio, thanks for finding me over here. Over the past 6 months, I’ve been slowing-down with plainMADE, keeping my collections small, and production light. After some long and hard thinking, I decided that my Fall 2012 collection would be my last. The business was such an incredible learning experience:¬†a true crash course in everything from design and production to marketing and branding. Unexpectedly, one of my favorite aspects of the business was the photographing the collections each season, and finding creative ways to get those images out into the world. I loved seeing plainMADE up on other blogs…pictures of my beautiful friends modeling scarves and knits scattered around the internet. exhilarating and exhausting: two words to describe the past 4 years.

I’m thrilled to have more time for new projects, a greater focus on teaching and mental space for my own creative practices. I’ll be posting here about new projects, art pieces and inspiration on a weekly basis!
