My hands always have to stay busy, whether it’s sewing, crocheting, or writing. I truly enjoy using my hands to create something useful and beautiful that can be appreciated for years.

My house is full of “prototypes” that I didn’t feel were good enough to represent me.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work.
