"My Mother approached life and the process of “making” with the same sense of wonder, curiosity, openness, and enthusiasm. Her aesthetics were evident in her art making, tailoring, and cooking. My Mother combined the traditional and the new. Both her guidance and recipes were often sought after by family and friends. I follow my Mother’s advice and live my life as she lived hers.
Respect and be kind to yourself. Respect and be kind your family. Respect and be kind to others. Respect and value what you make. Respect and enjoy food. Be mindful of waste. Know the true meaning of friendship. And remember to live by the Golden Rule."
