THE DRESS THAT STARTED IT ALL.
When I graduated from Art Center I walked across the stage, looked out at everyone, and saw a circle of sweet grandmothers dressed in dark navy and grey linen. It was the Korean Hanbok. I fell in love. Two months later, I was in Seoul.
Since that first fateful trip, I've worked and travelled in South Korea a lot. First sourcing fabrics for my clothing line in LA, and ultimately moving to study Korean at Seogang University. But it was that first experience traveling across South Korea with my dear friend Eliza that showed me a place where my heart felt completely at home.
My love of ancient living - specifically growing food, cooking over fire, living outdoors, and making art from nature - spans the globe. My first design job was in Athens, Greece. I was a food packaging designer and the culture there was a perfect fit for my passionate side. I loved the different way of living and everything was so pure. One job at a time - one project here and there - I've collected the skills and experiences that combine to inspire the Broth and Stone way. There is so much beauty in our world it is amazing. I'm honored to share the beauty that has found me, and I'm thankful for the friends and neighbors who have taught me what I know. I'm grateful to share what they have shared with me with you!

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Here, my daughter Izzy is deep in her morning work. I left the room and returned to discover this going on - a confident and hilarious 7-year-old making kimchi when we were homeschooling in 2017.
