My name is Betsie and I'm a U.S. based fiber artist and costume designer. I create fiber art knitwear and hair accessories as well as large scale textile art/sculptural dresses and hats. My inspirations come from a variety of places: from nature- all manner of leaves, flowers, roots, and other organic shapes can be found in my work, from faerie folklore, fashion and costume history, and from exploring the vivid world of color.

One of the most unique aspects of my work are my free motion embroidered leaves and botanicals- all 100% handmade. I pride myself on my original designs, quality materials- such as luxury wool & blended yarns and shimmery silk fabrics, top quality construction techniques, and…

One of the most unique aspects of my work are my free motion embroidered leaves and botanicals- all 100% handmade. I pride myself on my original designs, quality materials- such as luxury wool & blended yarns and shimmery silk fabrics, top quality construction techniques, and great customer service. With all my wearable pieces, it's my desire to create both a feeling of enchantment and a little island of color that the wearer can take into her everyday life.

**All my creations are made in a smoke-free home!**

I have a bachelor's degree in painting from Grand Valley State University in Michigan, as well as a degree in fashion design from FIDM/The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, California. I display my big fiber art dresses and hats in galleries and art shows, and sell my everyday wearable accessories on Etsy and in boutiques and galleries. I love custom requests and have done orders both big (like floral embroidered wedding dresses) and small (a simple embroidered flower barrette)- all are welcome and appreciated!
