I learned to sew in second grade. Even way back then I knew that sewing and fabric were my passion. Since then, rarely a day goes by that I don’t sew. Sewing and fiber arts are what I've done to earn a living for more years than I care to admit. So far as fabric goes the possibilities are endless, especially when I add dye or paint to the fabric.

A few years ago I taught myself to screen print. My methods are pretty unorthodox, but I really like the results. Screen printing is a great way to add another layer of interest to fabric or a collage.

I have a love for vintage stuff too. I am offering a small collection of vintage items in my shop as well. I often incorporate vintage items into my work, be it vintage fabric, vintage buttons on a bag, or vintage papers in a collage. Collage is a new medium for me and I am loving it! It’s a great way to be creative and hopefully pass on some joy to others.

When I’m not sewing or collaging I can be found walking my dog Flower on the rural dirt road where I live. I find so much inspiration this way. What I see always gives me ideas about what to make, and what colors to use. I am constantly inspired by what I notice around me. It’s a great way to live and work.

I'm one of the luckiest people on the planet!
