a pencil drawing of jess and mo, created by mo for our wedding invitations

Jess and Mo met over a shared love of arts and crafts. And now live in the home studio of their dreams.

Jess loved Mo's creativity: he could play your arm like a saxophone, draw basically anything his incredible imagination could dream up and had a library of sketchbook diaries to show for it, and the fact that he was also an art school grad and a working artist (and let us not forget the Spanish accent).

Mo loved Jess' zest for creating things from scratch:  she could cook a multi-course Moroccan meal, sew up new living room curtains or create the entirety of their wedding decor.  Jess had mastered almost every craft she'd purchased the supplies for.  And she had a pretty eclectic resume full of other creative endeavors.

Jess and Mo lived together in Cambridge, MA, then moved to Silicon Valley for almost a decade, and recently moved back to the East Coast to be closer to family.  Upon their return back East, they purchased a very old barn to be the inspiration for their next phase of life. They spent a year renovating the inside, and are so excited to welcome you in!

Jess will be teaching classes and Mo is still brainstorming about the first art classes he would like to teach. In the meantime he'll continue his video game artist position, working from home for his CA-based employer.
