Born and raised in Oregon, I've been sewing for 40 years and will be until the day they lay me to rest. I try to create each item I make straight from the heart filled with dreams and wishes for the wearer or owner. Each item is one of a kind. I may have similar items but never a duplicate.

Being a large woman I found it difficult to find clothes that I enjoyed, or that were colors I wanted to wear so I began making all my own clothes and have never looked back. I also spent several years in the theater world helping actors find truth in the characters through costumes and I realized, we all…

Being a large woman I found it difficult to find clothes that I enjoyed, or that were colors I wanted to wear so I began making all my own clothes and have never looked back. I also spent several years in the theater world helping actors find truth in the characters through costumes and I realized, we all what to wear clothing that reflects our truth and lets face it, the box stores don’t have an isle for that. I love seeing the faces of people I have created something for and watch their spirit soar as the twirl or caress their new item. Then, I know that my work has found heart.

Working with recycled materials is another passion and my bib overall dresses are not only recycled but practical and beautiful all in one. Strong and durable they hold up to hard work and yet reflect a bit of whimsy too.

A few years back I started making quilts when a friend became a quilter and keep encouraging me and found a new place to create magic and joy for others. I tend to find the pattern in my head and love to fussy cut images found in the fabrics and create around them such as my Day of the Dead Quilts, or Fairy Magic Quilts.

So, after years of working in the real world, I have decided to live in a magical one filling my life with love, beauty, and magic, and hopefully adding a bit to yours. May you enjoy and be blessed with magic moments as well, and may love and laughter fill your life.
