Artist Statement:

“Home is where the heart is.  After a long day at work, or watching all the ugliness of the world on the news, you want a safe place to return to, to feel energized, at peace, and love. Whatever that may be, your home or place of work. That’s what I want to bring to your space, energy, peace, and love.  I have no deep reason why I create the things I do, other than I want to make beautiful things that bring joy to your life, and your home.”

SampleHAUS is a place where we create unique and one-of-a-kind artwork from interior design waste and discontinued marketing samples. We also make small batch pottery such as our well-sought-after planters. SampleHAUS got its start by creatively up-cycling interior design waste into eclectic home decor. While working at an interior design firm, I was always surrounded by beautiful fabrics and other materials that mostly ended up getting thrown away, for reasons such as discontinuation or project surpluses. I decided to begin collecting these excess materials and that’s when SampleHAUS was born. Today, my pottery has taken the spotlight in and running the business, but it is funding my mission to reduce textile waste in the world. Let’s see where this goes.
