As a little girl, some of my earliest memories include my father taking my sisters and I out for a car ride. He’d grab us an ice cream and drive all to his favorite neighborhoods. We’d pick our favorite houses and discuss what life would be like if we lived there. We always appreciated the little details and complexities of old, historic design. This blossomed into a life long passion for my city and its architecture. I am fascinated by the stories of the people who once inhabited these structures. I love to reflect on better days, harder days, and the way time is the only thing separating both. The Chicago collection is dedicated to my love for my city and its inhabitants, past and present.
