In every piece of my crocheted art, there is something from the land, the sky, the grass and flowers, the woods and meadows that surround me.

If you like my work but can not find a particular piece that fits you -- feel free to contact me, I will gladly crochet something especially for you.

Thank you very much for taking time to view my work!

with sincerest love from a far away place,
