I have always created.
When I was a kid I entered a drawing contest held by a local newspaper - and I won. Creativity has been part of my life ever since. I graduated college with a degree in Medical Illustration.
My Etsy shop is filled with my favorite materials and my own designs. All of my items begin with ideas from one of my very large sketchbooks (I've filled three 200 page books since I opened my shop in 2006!)
Japanese crafts, materials and meticulous craftsmanship inspire me. Finely detailed applique and hand embroidery are thrilling to me. Yukari Takahara is my superhero!
Here you'll find items that blend usefulness, playfulness and beauty.
You can find my hand embroidery featured in:
Cross-Stitch & Needlework Magazine.
Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts Magazine.
Kate Shoup's book titled "Not Your Mama's Stitching".
