About

When I was a little girl I learned to decorate traditional Pysanky from my Grandmother in Detroit, Michigan. Since then I have visited many places around the world, and learned many things from many different people. Now that I have returned to making Pysanky, my designs are an eclectic mix of tradition and adventure.

All of my Pysanky are hand blown through a single hole in either the top or bottom of the egg and decorated using beeswax, kystka, candle flame and aniline dye. When finished, the wax is melted and carefully wiped off of the egg. The egg is then varnished and the hole is covered with either a plain closure or a top for hanging.

I hope you enjoy my collection of eggs as much as I enjoyed making them. Please feel free to contact me for special requests.
