I love handmade goods because they are special. I think that if everythingyou buy, whether its home wares, clothing, or accessories, has a special and unique touch, you will love everything you acquire for a very long time. Some people think that classic means a simple or neutral aesthetic, but to me, classic means something that you will love forever and is uniquely you; and I hope that Fig & Faun provides that for people.

What have you made recently?
I generally start a new design by looking through my collection of vintage images. One will usually jump out and me and then I start playing with collage ideas. I tend to work on several designs at once, switching back and forth as different ideas pop into my head. Once I have completed a design, I print it on FSC-certified paper. FSC-certified means that the paper is made only from well-managed forests, controlled sources, and recycled wood or fiber. I then cut, score, and fold the paper for cards, or mount the image for prints. I also hand cut and assemble envelopes for my cards.
