so excited to have been the etsy featured seller!:

I am a textile and fiber artist, specializing in hand stitching, needle felting, and mixed media. Using all natural new and vintage materials in my work, I strive to create heirloom quality pieces which may be passed down through the years. I love the idea of creating original, one of a kind works which are equally durable, strong, and yet soft to the touch. This strength of construction and all natural material allows people to enjoy distinctive pieces of art, while reducing their consumption (helping our environment!)…

I am a textile and fiber artist, specializing in hand stitching, needle felting, and mixed media. Using all natural new and vintage materials in my work, I strive to create heirloom quality pieces which may be passed down through the years. I love the idea of creating original, one of a kind works which are equally durable, strong, and yet soft to the touch. This strength of construction and all natural material allows people to enjoy distinctive pieces of art, while reducing their consumption (helping our environment!).

My work is entirely stitched by hand, with needle and thread, or needle felted (a process by which wool fiber is poked and shaped thousands of times with barbed needles). Hand stitching is extremely time consuming, but makes for completely original and detailed work of heirloom quality... as well as a distinctive visual look which cannot be duplicated by machine.

All of my items arrive gift wrapped in either a handmade cotton or linen bag or in a gift box made from recycled materials... it's always fun to open a pretty package ;) Taking great care in both my work and packaging is extremely important to me... i always want customers to be excited and delighted with their pieces!


I hope my work inspires and envelops one into a fanciful world of imagination!!
