I live in Philadelphia.  I sketch on the train.  I knit on my friends’ sofas.  I calligraph on my dining table.   I love to learn new means of expressing creativity, finding ways for one to inform the other.  Primarily, I work with paper, but fiber arts are quickly becoming an obsession!

about the name… i’m exceedingly fond of trees, of their resiliency, variety, and sense of place.  as a native of Iowa, i feel a bit like a transplanted sapling on the East Coast: it’s not my native soil, but I’m enjoying the view.  The concept of regionalism informs everything from my cooking to my vocabulary, so it seemed appropriate to borrow the concept of place-change for this new venture!
