First, thanks for wanting to know more about me *blush*!
Second, you are probably wanting to know more about who I am and what I do right?
My name is Pippa (Pip) Lee and I am an Australian registered architect currently living in Brooklyn, NY. I moved here in 2011 and founded Pip+Pencil in 2016, borne from the impact the city's indoor centric lifestyle was having on my health and well-being, as well as a personal sensitivity to chemical smells.
Hailing from a country proud of its clean and healthy outdoor lifestyle, the shift towards spending a majority of my time either indoors or surrounded by many forms of pollution was the catalyst for the shift towards a healthy design approach.
Since discovering the world of non-toxic living in 2016, I have not turned back (once you know, you cannot un-know!) and have spent the last 3 years slowly converting my own apartment into a healthy home. Then, after having my son in 2018, I spent countless hours researching and looking for non-toxic pieces for his nursery, a room I am obviously very passionate about being a safe and non-toxic haven for babies!
I strongly believe that our health starts in the home, and our indoor environments have an enormous impact on our mental and physical state. If you think your home is impacting your quality of life, feel overwhelmed (gosh I know I did!) by the information out there or would just like some help or guidance then please reach out to us firstname.lastname@example.org.
