Things, Art, and Doilies
After graduating from art school I began working for an art supply store where, under the tutelage of my awesome boss Karen, I became her assistant picture framer. Being around art supplies 5 days a week really inspired me to experiment with mediums and materials.
The detail oriented work I did while framing also began to seep into my work as well. I like keeping things small because of the intimacy created while creating it and also while viewing it.
My art is all about body language, nature, and color. The narrative created between the subjects and the space they're in, and to each other is conveyed by these aspects. I like my viewer to create their own interpretation of a narrative. I'm also slightly obsessed with noses. It's the best feature ever!
The fiber part of my shop is a more recent skill developed for the purpose of the art collective I belong to known as The Ladies' Auxiliary. It's a good way to supliment my income and feed into my detail habit. It also allows for creativity during the long durations of being trapped under a baby who will only sleep when on top of a living, breathing, soft, warn, cushiony person.

Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I live with my husband, son and new baby daughter in the town where I was raised. I produce my work during stolen moments at naptime, and my studio has triumphantly returned to the table in the corner of the family room.
