I am a total packrat and collect a wide variety of materials so if you see a design you like but imagine it in a different way or with different colours, just let me know and I'll do my best to create something special for you!

I'm constantly experimenting with new materials and designs so check back to see my latest projects!

Everything is made by me in a pet-free and smoke-free environment.
