Hello! I'm Darbie Nowatka, the artist behind Field Guide Design, and I spend my days creating handmade jewelry and paper goods from my home studio in the Hudson Valley.
I grew up in New Jersey, majored in graphic design at RISD, moved to Greenpoint, Brooklyn, joined a touring band, traveled a bunch, and eventually headed upstate to Kingston, New York, where I currently live and work in a big, old victorian house with my husband, two cats, a bird, a hamster, and a fish.
I'm endlessly inspired by textile design, geometry, and nature.
Hmm...what else? I play music in Bishop Allen and The Last Names and dabble in art restoration.
And I'm a Sagittarius.
