I have been drawing, painting, and creating all my life. When our daughter was born, my hope was that I would bring as much creativity into her life as the arts had given me when I was younger.
Riley, who has just turned eight years old, and I have been making projects together since she was just a baby. Everything from paintings, room decoration, DIY GUCCI tutorials, to her very own jewelry line for little fashionistas LITTLE LUX.
Her kids necklace line can be found in over over 400+ stores including Barneys NY.


This painting, a collaboration between Riley and I, was born out of a question I asked Riley...
"Can girls be as tuff as boys?"
Riley thinking about her answer, said "Of course they can, girls are fierce!"
