I spent my childhood summers in Greenville, SC. Although Greenville has become cosmopolitan over recent years, it was a rural getaway for my siblings, first cousins and me when we were kids. I'm a city girl from Newark, NJ who loves to garden, crochet, and cook with fresh ingredients thanks to my experiences on their acreage. I often wonder who I'd become if I was had the typical inner city experience. So much of who I am is due to those long summer days playing in the soil and warm nights capturing fireflies. Diving into waterfalls, living life barefoot, and getting around in the bed of a pickup truck. Freedom from the strict rules of my parents' home, with my grandparents I could just BE.
Both of my grandparents are now in heaven but their influence continues to live on. My latest collection, Garden Variety, pays homage to them.
