About

I like to quilt, photograph, sew, paint, crochet, cut, collage and sketch things. When I'm left unattended I like to melt things, too.

My artworks are organic and cyclical. I quilt, crochet, paint and collage; but not all at once. If you see an older work and would like something similar in an alternative colour or pattern, just send me a convo. My quilts are generally produced with a pattern concept, but the fabrics dictate how they're going to play together and that often dictates the final size.

My general size rules for quilts are:
infant - up to 30" on longest side
toddler - up to 45" on longest side
cuddle - up to 72" on longest side
twin - approx 96" on longest side (by custom order)…

My prints and collage art do not come matted or framed unless specified. They will be shipped in a sturdy cardboard mailer with care against all reasonable postal damage.

I work from home and have a cat. I use the same washing machine for our laundry as for my quilts and other yarn and fabric products I make. I do not have a dedicated feline-free zone for my work. If you, or a gift recipient have a severe allergy, please add a comment and $5 to the cost of your item and I'll have it dry-cleaned or professionally laundered before shipping.

I am a member of both the Baltimore and the Capitol Region Street Teams. You can learn more about Baltimore events at www.baltimorecraft.com. You can find works by other Capitol Region members by searching keyword etsycrestteam here on Etsy.

You can also find me out and about on the interwebz, including:

If you see an item you like, but would like it created in other fabrics, please convo me. After we agree on pattern, fabrics and size, I will set up a Reserved listing for you. A 30% non-refundable deposit is required for all custom orders, the balance due on completion.
