About

Primitive and whimsy creations creatively designed and lovingly hand stitched with a great attention to detail!

Hi! Thank you for stopping by to check out my shop and to find out more about me. I like to keep busy all the time and you will never find me bored or "looking for something to do." I am an artist, designer and crafter so I always have plenty of projects lined up to work on.

I have been an Artist since I picked up my first crayon. By high school Prisma color pencils were my specialty, but I enjoyed creating art no matter what the medium. College took my creativity down another path – graphic design. I am still in that field and by day I am an Associate Creative Director. I use my weekends and evenings to create based on my imagination...and have a wonderful time doing it!

When I started out, most of my hand embroidery was adapted from patterns I purchased. However; in the past year or so I have been designing more and more of my own patterns, so you will only find them here at WickedlyCreative! I enjoy offering unique and one-of-a-kind items that you and friends and family will enjoy for years to come!

My process consists of setting a goal of how many new patterns I want to create for a season. Followed by brainstorming and sketching my ideas...then refining them until I am satisfied with the design(s). I hand draw them onto the fabric and select the fabric backing for the pillow so I can coordinate the colors. From there I pin on Warm & Natural batting and start the hand embroidery! For my button sheep there is also a process of selecting the vintage buttons which I have previously sorted and cleaned.

I have just expanded my creations to include mixed media art dolls and pillows. Every one is a work of art and is one-of-a-kind (OOAK)! Each creation varies depending on the theme, but they are all a labor of love. Fabrics are selected and then I hand dye, hand paint, draw and stamp to add the patterns, textures, colors I desire. Tons of machine and hand sewn details are added during the dolls/pillows construction and many of the dolls have vintage buttons and metal findings for unique features. Please each dolls description and photos for more details.

I hope that my creations visually enhance and celebrate your life...your passions, special moments and festive holidays. And most important give you reasons to smile!

    I love creating with my hands, you will never find me "just sitting around." After a busy day as an Associate Creative Director, I enjoy coming home and creating new designs; hand embroidery is my zen.
