About

Welcome to Harmonic Strings! It seems fitting to choose the name, “Harmonic Strings” as a way to celebrate the many experiences each of us have; in essence, each of us weave individual threads of life experiences into wondrous, harmonic tapestries.

My mom taught me how to crochet, knit and sew when I was a little girl. I loved my career teaching and working in the performing arts, and always drew from my background in the textile arts to inspire my students and my own passion as an educator.

My artistic inspiration comes from my education and background in music, drama, dance and costuming. I have been blessed with opportunities to develop my artistic perspective as an actress, vocal soloist, and ensemble singer, dance choreographer, costume designer, and conductor for musical theatre orchestras.

My artistic inspiration comes from my education and background in music, drama, dance and costuming. I have been blessed with opportunities to develop my artistic perspective as an actress, vocal soloist, and ensemble singer, dance choreographer, costume designer, and conductor for musical theatre orchestras. My favorite endeavors include “Oliver”, “The King and I”, “Annie Get Your Gun”, “The Wizard of Oz”, “The Little Mermaid”, “My Fair Lady”, “Guys and Dolls,” “The Medium,,” and “The Sound of Music.”
After teaching, directing, conducting, performing arts for many years, and raising two beautiful daughters, I can finally return to my first passion involving textiles.

Right now, I am enjoying the touch and feel of yarn…so I began with my mom’s favorite pastime, crochet. It has been fun to honor my mom’s artistic medium in a style and artistic direction that is completely my own and draws from my own experiences.
I hope you enjoy my creations, because they were developed with great joy, love, and artistic passion.

Sincerely,

Ruthann
