I love to love, laugh and create!

Greetings. I was born and raised in Connecticut, where I still reside. I come from a talented family. My maternal grandfather was a master carpenter. My paternal grandmother was an illustrator for a NYC firm in the 1930's. Family members have also designed high grade wool "Persian" rugs, designed and made intricate lace as well as all kind of garments.

I have sewn since I was 8. I wasn't much older when I began to do needlework. From that age on I either had a needle, crochet hook or paint brush in my hand.

I was Needlework Consultant for the now defunct Creative Expressions in the 1980's. I taught people how to do crewel, needlepoint and quilting.

I was Needlework Consultant for the now defunct Creative Expressions in the 1980's. I taught people how to do crewel, needlepoint and quilting.

I designed and made costumes, with the help of my mother, for one of my high school plays. I also spent 5 years designing, making (and teaching parents with little experience how to be "creative and crafty"), decorations for our local All Night Graduation Party for High School Seniors. That was at least an 8 month commitment on my part. The school areas we used consisted of 10 rooms, 4 hallways and various entry ways and a courtyard.

I have done the decorations for numerous family and friend's functions including graduations, anniversaries, wedding showers and weddings.

I paint, sew, crochet, do party decorations, and make angels out of all mediums. I love the glue gun. I like to recycle materials, especially antique laces, buttons and ties. I will make whatever my "muse" inspires me to do.

The great thing about learning many things over the years plus having such talented people around, I am able to create most decorations from sight. I always add a twist so the creation is truly mine . So if you do have an idea or are looking at something, please so ask me if I can do it.

I love people. Love to laugh. Love to play. Live to create.
