Luca is an artist, craftsperson, mending aficionado, and plant enthusiast. She was born in Nagano and grew up in Memphis and has lived in far-flung locales like Maine, Minnesota, Baltimore, and Osaka. When she’s not building something, sewing something, or watching beans grow, she’s probably eating, reading, or persuading someone to pick up one of her faves. Since you’re probably wondering, yes! She is Japanese and loves Chibimaruko-Chan with her entire being! And believes Asada Mao-san deserved the gold! Please peruse her favorite books below because they are worth it.
