Announcement    Greetings from Duluth Minnesota! I live near Lake Superior and am always inspired by the beauty of my natural surroundings. My current passion is dyeing fabric with a technique called ice dyeing, or in my case Snow dyeing during the long winter months. While I do purchase new items, my favorite items to work with are vintage. Both vintage clothing and and linens find their way into my dye bath.

On Etsy since 2006

"Compulsive Crafter working through a crazy large stash of fabric and supplies!"

My drive to create has been with me since i can remember. From mudpies decorated with flower petals and seeds, my 1st rock tumbler, numerous latch hook rug kits, string art, crocheted critters sold at lunch hour, I have never set down my scissors or glue gun. ( and it is tough to get much done with your hands full)

Trained as a textile artist, I tend to meander through many different art/craft forms as i like to try new techniques.

I have made dolls, fairy wings, tiaras, clothing and accessories, jewelry, handbags and collage. I knit poorly and crochet happily. Screen printing, fabric dyeing and weaving are all favorites as well.

i hope you enjoy my work
