Enough about me.

I’m a trained pastry chef, DIY queen & mother with my heart in west England, my soul in Chicago, & my feet in south-central PA. Paintbox Soapworks was born out of my love for handicraft, beautiful fragrances & clean hands. I play around with colors & scents & soothe my insomnia by dreaming up new ideas. I pull heavily from music (Waits, White Stripes, Wilco), books (Tolkien, field guides, the avalanche of children’s books in C’s room) & my own fertile imagination. Lucky you 🙂

While I’m no professional, I’m proud of my photos. Please do not use them without permission.
