J Sherman Studio is a home-based business in Newton, Massachusetts. We are accessible to the Green Line and down the street from a vibrant village center. We are a small team consisting of the principal/founder, full time senior designer, and part time designer. We work hard and efficiently but have a sense of humor about our work. The Studio is located on its own floor of the house and enjoys the occasional distraction of two furry cats, a friendly and helpful husband, and two adorable children.
