About

Growing up on Cape Cod, MA, whatever I was doing I was usually aware of whether the tide was coming in or going out.

Now in Chicago, I check the weather more than the tides. I live with my husband, an art historian and partner in utopian dreaming, and a few plants.

All of my work is dedicated to the people who have made it possible for this person, to be in this moment, writing this to you.

Thank you for visiting this place and looking at some things, have a safe onward journey.

Kristin
