Susan Turnock + Heather Arak-Kanofsky

Founders, Gifts for the Good Life, Event Innovators

Heather and Susan are best friends and creative soul mates who are coincidentally sisters.  From a very early age, they loved inventing and making things almost as much as loved being together.  What was passed down from the four generations of artists / entrepreneurs before them, was a love of the creative process, materials and seeing great ideas come to fruition.  

After college, they both forged their own businesses; Heather created Arak Kanofsky Studios with her husband Nathan, focusing on hand-crafted, design-driven invitations and paper wardrobes, and Susan created What Fun!, innovative bath products sold on QVC and 3000 stores worldwide. Inevitably, they joined together and the marriage of art + product organically grew into Gifts for the Good Life.
