ABOUT STUDIO LUPINO
Growing up, I read the story of Miss Rumphious. When she is young, her uncle tells her she must do three things in life: travel somewhere far away, live by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful. When she is grown, she has done the first two, but has no idea of how to make the world more beautiful. She goes on a walk trying to think of something to no avail. The next spring, lupines began growing where she had taken a walk because there had been a hole in her pocket which contained lupine seeds. Finally, she knew what to do and began spreading lupine seeds everywhere she walked. the children called her the Lupine Lady. I have yet to live by the sea, but I've traveled far away (and have plans to do much more) and this is my way of trying to make the world a more beautiful place.
"I have made collages for as long as I can remember. No surface was safe, I covered my bedroom door, notebooks, purses, a sash for a dress, anything! It wasn’t until I studied abroad in Italy that I discovered handmade papers. I started making cards to send to friends and family back home. I’m always making things, throwing a dinner party so I can make invitations, making Christmas gifts. It’s the best when someone else can have what you’ve made."
