I've been an artist for as long as I can remember.

While my four children were growing up, I hand-painted ceilings and walls, created floral arrangements, and embellished clothing. I made Halloween costumes, party decor, and helped (probably too much) with school projects. I've designed custom jewelry for local shops, created hand beaded veils and wedding accessories, and stitched and embellished an heirloom crazy quilt entirely by hand.

I have a penchant for whimsical designs, but I concentrate on attention to detail and fine craftsmanship. My materials range from vintage fabrics and trims graciously donated or serendipitously discovered to new fabrics, felts, findings and beads I just couldn't resist.

My designs are meant to "tug at the heartstrings" and hopefully encourage a smile in the process!
Thank you for visiting!
