About me:

I am a pharmacist by profession, but my soul is fed by writing Pysanky. This is a tradition learned growing up in a Ukrainian Lemko family, where Pysanky were written each year at Eastertime. Once my two wonderful sons were grown and on their own, pysankarstvo blossomed to a year-round passion for me. Learning how to make Pysanka Jewelry several years ago has taken me to another level. I live in Yardley PA, USA, with my husband Emil and 2 cats Zena (my furry supervisor) and Zoe.


We love to travel, and enjoy friends, food and wine. I am very excited to be a part of the Pysanka tour to Ukraine in April 2020.
