About

Hi, I have always enjoyed making things. As a small child, I would crochet fanciful creatures. As a young adult I moved on to drawing and painting. My work involved an exploration of the human condition to create dream like narratives. About 15 years ago I revisited my childhood interest in dolls and animals and started making them to sell. Right now I am obsessed with fabric and am making dolls, and clothing. Being home with my young children has changed the way I work and the things I make. Before children, I had the luxury of staying up late working on large paintings. Now I have to take advantage of fragments of free time. I have focused my energy on smaller projects and things I can pull out and put away easily. My children are also a constant source of inspiration. I love the way my daughter sees the world, the ordinary becomes precious. I first came up with the idea of making skirts because of the lack of options available. She loves sharks and dinosaurs and I had a hard finding girl's clothes with those things on them. While shopping for my son, I noticed that even boy's baby clothes had the skeletal system of dinosaurs, the solar system, and other exciting things. I thought girl's should have these options too. So I stated making skirts with bugs, snakes, constellations, neurons, etc. I like skirts because they are comfy and with an elastic waist kids don't grow out of them so soon. I wanted to make quality unique clothing that can be worn for a long time and passed on.
My Dandelion Heart holds onto the spirit of childhood. I love dandelions because they are tough, hopeful, nutrient dense, and beautiful little yellow flowers.
