Announcement   Happy Summer!

I've recently returned to school to finish my Aerospace Engineering degree and don't make quite as much as I used to. I am still available for custom orders (on a limited basis) and will be adding listings of current merchandise as time allows.

Please send me a message to discuss your project and I'll be happy to work with you to make something special!

About

Paper as Fabric - Happiest Accident Ever

I have always been a creative person. For nearly thirteen years I expressed my creativity through fiber art – knitting, crochet, and spinning. It was on a trip to a yarn store while on vacation that I was inspired to begin working with re-purposed paper. The designs started out simply with small clutch bags and coin pouches. I began offering my creations at the Saturday artist’s market at Flying Monkey Arts. The community embraced my quirky little creations and encouraged me to keep going.

I soon developed several wallet styles, belts, headbands, and larger bags. What started out as a casual hobby quickly became a full time passion. After two years of traveling to various conventions and setting up at market on Saturdays, I was lucky enough to earn a permanent space. Most days I can be found in studio 257 on the Flying Monkey wing of Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment creating custom pieces, designing new items, and experimenting with new ways to use paper as fabric.
