My life as an artist began at a very early age, with dance as my creative expression. As I grew older I fell in love with traveling, wandering through central America, South America, India, Thailand, Nepal....always drawn to the street life, especially craft markets.

I spent over 12 years nurturing my daughter and my craft on Saltspring island, then moved over to settle in Victoria, B.C four years ago. The opening of my dream store was one and a half years ago, right in the heart of downtown. My cute little extension of myself, where I can share my craft and passion with the world. I am truly living my dream!!
