I'm Mary.

Although I've lived in 19 different homes as a single lady, today I'm making home with my husband, a kindergarten teacher, in Hanoi, Vietnam. We are still figuring out where we'll put down permanent roots, but that's o.k. I've gotten pretty good at making home wherever I am in the world and now I get to do it with my best friend. 

I started writing Coucou Home a long time ago, and although it's gone through many iterations, it remains the thing in my life that grounds me. What began as a graduate school project almost a decade ago is now a place for me to explore home through several of my creative outlets: illustration, drawing, photography, writing, and of course, food! 

I would be HONORED if you supported my creative work by purchasing prints and other things I make via my shop.
