During the day I'm a working stiff. But at night..I CRAFT.

Growing up, I was inspired to craft from my mom, who arranged flowers and left blocks of green floral foam everywhere around the house.

Nowadays I take inspiration from everything around me: my friends, the city of San Francisco, and commonplace objects around the house.

I love being able to use a needle and thread to show what's on my brain---(or just illustrate what I'm craving for lunch).
