About

One of a kind, high quality items made with love

I have always loved art and was surrounded by inspiration growing up. My mother played the violin and piano and was an avid crafter. My father was a woodworker and my grandmother from Russia was a quilter. We spent every summer at our cabin in the woods with no T.V. but lots of art supplies and beautiful scenery. When I wasn't horseback riding, I learned to crochet, embroider by hand, and how to clean and paint ceramics and porcelain.

In college I studied art - photography, oil painting, drawing, pottery, weaving - and after I got married I began quilting.

Now, I have two children and I found that I had to scale back to smaller, one-of-a-kind pieces, as the kids keep me quite busy, especially my son who has special needs. I made a quilt for him after he was born that was featured in Quiltmaker Magazine.

I am an avid ribbon and lace collector. I also have some lovely vintage Asian silk and wool fabric. Many of my collected materials find their way into my high-end Christmas stockings. It is important to me to honor my faith in God and a staple of my work is designing Bible covers.

I love to use natural, luxury fibers such as silk, linen, high-quality cotton, and wool. I want to make special items that will be treasured as heirlooms for generations.
