Bee currently lives in Chicago, IL and spends most of her days making new jewelry and looking for artwork to blow her mind.  The line of jewelry she creates started in 2006 while studying Art Therapy and altered books in her home city of Buffalo, NY.

The books used are found thrown out in Chicago alleyways or in a deteriorating state where they would otherwise end up in a landfill. The pages are repurposed into wearable art accessories and as a result, each piece has a beautifully nostalgic feel to it.  Bee is also the co-owner of a brand new gallery shop in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood called Paperish Mess. Come for a visit and meet their ShopKitty. :]
