I primarily write about the intersection of art, design, craft, and business. Some of my work:


I wrote a year-long series of regular blog posts about the museum’s library’s collection, as well as a number of additional design posts for the website.


I wrote a column, “Shelf Life,” about book cover design, in every print issue of PRINT, the leading magazine for graphic designers, for ten years, from 2007 to 2017, first as a staff editor and later, as a contributing editor.

Yarn Market News

I wrote a marketing column from 2011 to 2020 for this b-to-b publication aimed at yarn store owners.

The Riveter

In 2019, I wrote a series of articles about women and the workplace for theriveter.co, a digital community that originally was developed to accompany an IRL community of nation-wide, women-focused co-working spaces.

Garden Design

I also started an online reader submission series called “My Garden,” which featured interviews and photos from readers. Here are two of my favorites:

Design Observer

American Heritage

Columbia College Today


and as a special nod to coronavirus…my fun-fact blurb about John M. Barry’s The Great Influenza in Entertainment Weekly that I read and wrote about in 2004.
