I am a self-taught artist, writer, crafter and graphic designer who grew up drawing, coloring and sewing. I learned many creative techniques in Girl Scouts, and during my two years of art in jr. high. I also learned to sew and decorate cakes during two more years of home economics in high school.

I have become both an artistic crafter and a crafty artist.
