Launch of Asterisk and None

Now on Etsy!  Recipe Towels from Asterisk and None.



As an artist I have always been interested in how memories shape our lives and surroundings. I believe that by remembering where we've come from - the people and moments that have shaped us - we can find inspiration. Asterisk and None is my tribute to my mother and her love of a home cooked meal.


I grew up in Marin County in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Our family moved houses a lot. We were often in transition - getting used to new surroundings, new neighbors, new routes to school. The one thing that was consistent growing up was my mother's cooking. No matter what, she always had a meal on the table, prepared with love at the end of the day.

More than anything, my mom wanted to write a cookbook. Unfortunately, she passed before this dream came true, but her recipe collection remains a powerful reminder to me of her love of family and a good meal. She'd collect her favorite recipes and write or type them out on blue lined paper kept in a binder that was covered in kitchen wallpaper. That cookbook with the stained pages of favorite recipes became a beloved family treasure and serves as the inspiration for these towels.

I created these towels - replicas of her best and most time-honored recipes as a way to honor her and her spirit. My hope is that they inspire you to make your own memories over a home-cooked meal.

Bon Appetit!
