My early life was steeped in Cajun French lore & culture passed on from my New Orleans-born mother, Yvonne. The oldest of six siblings, I spent those years in the wild and humble setting of an oyster farm on the coast of Washington. One of my earliest memories is of bees buzzing while I sat nestled in my father’s pea vines surrounded by the scent of the blossoms. Our playground was the beach, the forest and the garden, where we learned to use our imaginations to make whatever we wanted from the resources at hand. Becoming a maker at such an early age was one of the best things to happen to me and I have now been creating for over 40 years.
The first incarnation of French Girl started with my series of knitting design books: French Girl Knits, that provided an opportunity to lead summer tours in Languedoc, France, and grew to include our organic beauty line that launched on Etsy in 2010. I am committed to offering products made with exclusively organic, wild-crafted and sustainable ingredients.
French Girl is the culmination of my love of nature, as well as French heritage and lifestyle; I feel very blessed to work alongside my family and share our brand with you!
