I've been making these Snuggle Monsters in my “spare-time” since January, 2009 and thoroughly enjoy it. I love coming up with new designs and creating personalities for my monsters. It's exciting to see a new creation transform from a sketch on scratch paper to a vibrant and huggable stuffed animal made from gentle fleece. It takes a lot of time to make each monster, but its fun work. I love making artistic and creative things, so it's been great to have a focus for my imagination.

It's about more than just sewing for me; I am an artist of many mediums including painting with egg tempera and printmaking. I have a background in art and psychology, and have experience teaching art to children. It's important to me to give back to the community whenever possible, so I donate my time, talent, and monsters to various charities including Comfort Zone Camp and Spirit Jump.


Snuggle Monsters are uniquely hand-made stuffed animals made out of luscious fleece material with hand stitched details. They are hand-crafted in a smoke-free home with all new materials and securely sewn with no buttons or other small parts.
