Why Sisu Studios?
I am a second-generation Finnish American. Sisu is a Finnish word that refers to a strong sense of pride and self-sufficiency. It took courage for my grandparents to leave their homeland and start a new life for themselves.
Recently I have been faced with the end of my 19-year marriage and my mother's decline into Alzheimer's Disease. I must make a new life for myself and my two young sons. I have decided to turn my personal form of "art therapy" into a small business.
Each quilt I make will be unique, just like the lucky child who receives it!
Thank you for your interest and support!
