I learned the basics of knitting as a teenager and began knitting sweaters, hats and mittens for family and friends. College and work soon became priorities in my life and knitting was set aside for many years.
Now, I'm a teacher of little ones with special needs, a wife, and a mother of 2 girls. I began my teaching career and started a family. With a busy life devoted to family and teaching, I soon realized how much I had missed the colors, the textures and the challenges of knitting and so began my journey back into an art I love.

Gorgeous colors of yarn and a wide array of available fibers have inspired me to knit even more. I discovered the art of felted wool many years ago and enjoy the process. I've been knitting for many years creating handbags and accessories for myself. I began knitting sweaters and felted handbags for friends. My work has now expanded to include a variety of accessories, knit and felted flowers and home goods.

I enjoy creating custom pieces, so feel free to contact me.
