happy anniversary K&S

Monday, September 17, 2018


So much fun working together with Kassie & Skylar on their wedding stationery. Having traveled extensively throughout Morocco and sharing a love for intricate Moorish design, they wanted to capture an old-world Moroccan vibe for their invitation suite. As well, they are nature lovers and spend much of their free time together exploring the lush green forests of Mendocino and Humboldt County. Hand-printed letterpress in aubergine & antique gold inks on handmade paper from Spain. Escort cards hand-calligraphed by Nancy Hopkins. They served up Middle Fork Roasters espresso hand-delivered from Seattle by one of the guests. Photos by Lisa Lefkowitz Photography

Provence in Berkeley! Come cool off with chilled rosé from Provence and the Languedoc while viewing a collection of letterpress & aquarelle prints from my summer residency in S. France. At Vintage Berkeley on Vine Street. Hope to see you there!

A page from my summer sketchbook….and the fascinating insect, la cigale. Their unique buzzing sound is the distinct “music” of summer in S. France.
