About Us

Luke is 11 yrs old and in the 6th grade. He is sweet, loving, happy, and incredibly bright. He also has autism. He loves music, animals, yoga and....drumroll.....parades. :) He also loves to draw, and he brings his crayons and paper with him everywhere he goes.

I am a self taught artist who specializes in mosaics, dog portraits drawn with colored pencils, and jewelry. Luke and I spend a lot of time drawing together and I am truly thankful to share a common interest that allows me to spend such quality time with him. While his style is quick and free flowing, I am slow and deliberate. We are two peas is a pod, yet exact opposites. I admire his creativity and freedom, and I learn something new from him every single day.

I have been a member of the Dedham Square Artist Guild for 5 years. I am also a 200 hr registered yoga teacher and received my certification with Erica Nunnally of the Bija Institute in Cumberland, RI. I hold additional certifications in two levels of Reiki, yoga for children ages 3 through teen, Prenatal, Yin, and yoga for children with autism and special needs. I am also the owner of which creates mala beads and meditation accessories.

Knowing that Luke and I both benefit from a regular yoga practice, I combined our love of art, with our love for yoga. Working together, Luke and I make these necklaces and dedicate the proceeds to the growth, development, and support of our goal---bringing yoga classes and workshops to children with autism, and their caretakers.

Crayon necklaces

Carry a little piece of Luke with you! We had so much fun with these. Luke and I selected some of his well loved crayons and set them in sterling silver to form a wearable piece of art. Each one is unique and colorful.

The chain measure 18" in length and is also sterling silver.
