About

I created Pocket Alchemy as a vehicle for my various creative projects. I do many things to fulfill my living and curiosity: I sew quilts and burping pads for babies, I knit things both flat and 3-dimensional, I choreograph, teach, costume and write about dance. I also adore paper! I am drawn to texture and nuance and am simply inspired to create. I appreciate the care and love inherent in handmade work.

As for the company name, Pocket Alchemy: creating, performing and witnessing art is alchemical to me: a bit of back-alley, sleight-of-hand magic that, even when my own, retains a dust of surprise, an element of the fantastic. Pocket Alchemy it is.

Thanks for stopping by the Pocket Alchemy shop. Feel free to drop a line if you have any questions or curiosities. I am always excited to entertain custom orders!…

You can find my felt matryoshka art dolls in their own shop, called Matushka Matryoshka by Pocket Alchemy: etsy.com/shop/matushkamatryoshka.
