Aly's Profile

About

Hi, I'm Aly, I love creating plush creatures, each with their own background stories, and built strong enough for play.

I'm a full time designer (scroll down to see my other links), and when I'm not in the studio, you might find me playing the ukulele, giggling at my flock of funny hens, walking my boys to school with the dog, drinking tea with a good book, on an art date, and of course hiking in the gorgeous Northwest!

Oregon is lucky enough to have rich, ancient, and protected patches of Old Growth forest, yet the one behind my house is exceptionally magical.... Bliss Forest....

There's the lake we've dubbed Rainbow Lake due to the amount of rainbows we've seen that end there. Somehow that rainbow magic has evolved the water creatures into what you meet there today…

... and Rabbit Hill where we have met the most amazing sorts of rabbits with unusual habits....

.... and of course the sunny patch of creek with the largest trees, that we are told is called Gnome Way, with all the shy gnomes. You only have to hang around for a few hours, or break out a splendid picnic, and you'll soon be greeted by the curious and friendly little fellas. They have shown me the book they are collectively writing called Humans. It contains many lovely water color rendering of humans, with a great care to detail, and stories of many generations of humans who have lived in this area of Oregon since pioneer times. They have just started their interviews section of the book and would very much like to come to talk to you. Gnomes are very curious and pleasant to have around one's home.
