She furthered her knowledge and passion for craft through an M.A. in the History of Decorative Arts from the Smithsonian Associates in partnership with the Corcoran College of Art and Design. When she's not in the gallery, Luiza can be found baking in her kitchen, walking her fat, yellow dog, or exploring the greater Boston area with her husband, an American historian at Wellesley College.
