In the early 1990's I addressed some wedding invitation envelopes for a friend and gradually the work evolved into Pen & Paper. My approach to design is inspired by simple graphics and the rich palette of colors and textures from handmade papers and natural elements. I live on the east end of Long Island surrounded by gardens, vineyards, seashores, and incredible skylines. They are a constant source of creative energy for me.
This line of work offers me the opportunity to meet so many diverse people. The occasions are happy, exciting and promising, whether a wedding or a start- up of a new business. The community of talented professionals I work among never ceases to amaze me. The joy of witnessing a bride and her family swept away by emotion is timeless. Quite simply, I love what I do.
