I’ve been creating art ever since I could pick up a crayon. So much so that I have a callous on my right middle finger which is how I learned to tell my right from left when I was little. I find inspiration and beauty all around me. I love going to museums and craft shows, antiquing, and flea marketing. I collect vintage jewelry, posters, old tins, purses, postcards, advertising art, and more. These are the passions that inspire my designs and patterns. I live in an old farmhouse circa 1864 that is filled with an eclectic mix of my collections and home decor pieces. When I’m not developing surface and textile designs, I make hand built pottery, jewelry, and do interior design. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to wake up each day and do what I love.
