is an artist living in Florida
Eliza is a seamstress, painter, photographer, and designer with a love for trial and error (and starting all over again), imperfect seams, and making a mess in the studio. While her weekdays are filled with museum work, her weekends are filled with fabric scraps, a trusty Janome, and quality time with her partner and their four kitties. She loves to quilt, make clothing and handmade goods, design fabric, and experiment with textile arts and paper goods of all kinds.
The Silk and Cotton Shop name was passed down from her great-grandmother, Bluma, who sold sewing notions and fabric in Panama City, Fl, in the early twentieth century. An entrepreneur who raised three sons and one daughter, immigrant from Russia, and four-foot-nine spitfire, Bluma lived a life full of humor, strong love, and a hefty dose of baked goods.
