my friends call me ‘g’.  i’m an artist-designer with a deep & abiding love for creating mindfully made dry goods for the modern woman as well as art textiles for the home.  the aim of my heart is to make simple, unfussy, easy to wear & live in goods that are as beautiful on the inside as it is out.  i love all forms of textiles & have been collecting vintage fabrics for quite some time.  i am also head over heels in love with the art of natural dyeing.  you will usually find me at some point throughout the day in my outdoor dye studio contemplating colours & patterns using all natural materials collected on my morning walks out in nature.  my other passion is cooking with in-season, organic produce from the local farmers markets which i visit religiously every week. i love reading poetry & my greatest desire is to live a poetic life.  i love people, places & things with a good story, a rich history, that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ !  i’m drawn to a simple, modern somewhat zen aesthetic with an occasional pop of color & print.  i believe with my whole heart that all good & enduring things, whether material or relational, should be developed slowly, carefully with ample time & love.  i am an avid supporter & practicing member of all ‘slow’ movements, whether it be food, fashion or life in general.  thanks for stopping by, i love to create beauty for you.
