We are so proud to have such talented and spectacular staff members. Rebecca Andoff, who has worked with us for over two years, creates jaw-dropping illustrations. Focusing each piece on a specific letter of the alphabet, Rebecca shows us there is zero limit to her imagination. Oh, and she makes her own Christmas wrapping paper. A+ for Andoff!
