Newcomers to Colorado Springs, Ann and Rachel are graduates of Radcliffe and Sweetbriar Colleges. Rachel also studied architecture at Harvard’s graduate school of design and at Cooper Union in New York.
Ann studied at the Craft Students League and NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts, both in New York, and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Both girls worked at the Metropolitan Museum with Leonard Heinrich, famed armorer and designer of Ingrid Bergman’s Joan d’Arc costume.
