On Etsy since 2016

It all started in the early summer of 2012. I was fresh out of University, alone in my apartment, and for the first time in a long time I was alone with my thoughts. Nowadays with how busy and fast paced a world we live in, having quiet time to yourself can feel like a luxury. It can also feel quite lonely.

Uncertain about where my life was heading, needing something to do to keep busy, and longing for company I decided to finally pursue a craft I had never found the time for. I pulled out a needle and some thread, grabbed a pair of socks, and using only what I could find in my apartment I made myself a friend; a simple sock moose.

And this little roughly hand sewn moose brought me so much joy!

I have always loved plush toys ever since I was a small child. And even as an adult I had never been able to part with them. These soft friends brought so much happiness to my life. They are always there to be a listening ear, a friend to snuggle, and even the sight of them brings a smile to my face.

And thus an idea was born. A desire to create plush dolls, and to share the happiness they bring us; whether that be nostalgia for our childhoods, the desire for a soft friend, or a love of collecting a handmade art piece. Plush lovers for life.

Where has this passion lead?

Over the past six years I have been making plush creations in various capacities. I have made them for myself, my friends, as private commissions, and have sold them in local and online markets. In 2016 I decided to open an Etsy store so that I could share my creations with even more people around the world.

Currently living on beautiful Manitoulin Island I am continuing my life’s journey as an artist with the goal of making art my full time career. I am currently in the process of expanding in to making patterns for sale along with my handmade plush toys. I want to share the happiness of this interactive art form with others; Sharing that feeling of holding a finished plush doll in ones hands, and the joy of creating something for oneself.

This is the shop where I sell my plush and fabric arts. For my original drawings please check:

Additional Information

★ My home and studio are smoke free.
