Welcome to Studio Milledisegni
Studio Milledisegni is the online home/shop for my design studio. In Italian, mille is the word for "thousand" and disegni means "designs/drawings." My wordplay attempts to capture the abundant spirit of those intricately-patterned millefiori beads, or the luscious layers of a millefeuille pastry, but as relates to the many different avenues that my design work follows.
The latest collection includes a selection of paper goods—cards, shimmer paper prints, typography posters, as well as decorative papers. And new calendars are coming soon! Most items are customizable, and I'm always excited about collaborating to create something that will make celebrations and events even more memorable for you and your family & friends.
One of my personal stationery designs just launched on Minted; please follow this link to view. New collections for weddings and other festive occasions will be launching in 2018.
I love designing-creating-making, and my hope is that this passion can bring a little more joy to your everyday life as well.
Thank you for visiting!
A little about me...
I am an American artist & writer and have been living in Florence, along with my daughter, since 2004. Art & design are part of every day around here, both in our home & in the city.
My degree in architecture has definitely lent a voice to the different realms of my creative work—painting, photography, design & countless projects involving paper. I love to create one-of-a-kind books, and have also written/illustrated a book that wanders through the history, architecture & everyday life of a dozen of the lovely local squares: The Piazzas of Florence (Murdoch Books, 2008).
Whatever the material or media, it’s the process and effect of layering that most fascinates me...and this is undoubtably one reason I find myself so happily immersed in the intricately layered city of Florence.
