Owner/Designer/Maker/One Woman Show at Wanderluxe, a craft jewelry and home goods collection for chic drifters and modern dreamers. Co-Owner of Asterluxe, a Providence shop that showcases modern makers and offers beauty for the home, body and space between.
I live in the West End of Providence with my boyfriend, Tobin and chihuahua, Rosa. Our condo is in an old manor building that we’ve lovingly restored. The West End neighborhood wins at architecture, walkability and character. The food and restaurant scene can’t be beat and Broadway is coming into it’s own as a great indie shopping street.
