I love texture, natural fibers, and raw materials! My love of these started at the beach - I'm a born and raised California beach girl - and the beach has so much, a beautiful natural palette: the sand, ocean, shells ... I used these as a child. My teen years saw me making massive macrame wall hangings, sewing and designing my clothes. Around this time I started dyeing and block printing fabric which I used in my fashion design class. Then I was introduced to fiber. Now I'm obsessed with it and combine my love of texture and fiber by creating hand knitted, one of a kind pieces on oversized needles my husband made for me. My mom was my teacher - she was an amazing seamstress and extraordinary knitter, I also had many mentor women in my life, including my daughter who has encouraged me to "do something with your creativity".
so, here i am!
