a simple stress reliever that became a passion


Lit & Looking is the wife and husband team of Catharine and Allen Kaufman. Here’s the story of how we started this journey:


The stress of day to day work and life lead me on a path that is now a passion. I needed a way to relieve my stress and found that working on these old window sashes brought me peace. A nice glass of Cabernet and some good music make it come together and let my creativity flourish.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.

I’ve been an electrician and maintenance mechanic for over 30 years. I love to work with my hands. I don’t have the creative streak like my wife, but she inspires my work. I love building unique lighting, especially when I can add it to one of her  creations. Together we  make beautiful one of a kind works of art
