1. Tell us about your work:
I am a knitter, crocheter, dyer and spinner of natural fibers. I strive to create items that will become a staple piece in your everyday attire.

2. How did you come to be a professional artist/crafter/designer?
I am a self taught Fiber Artist. I started knitting and crocheting once I became a stay at home Mom. I fell in love with making things for family and friends. As time passed, I started to tinker more and more with making on own designs. Knitting and designing has now branched off into making my own yarns. Dyeing and spinning has inspired me on a different level of color and texture.

Everywhere! The world is full of natural textures and colors that inspire.

At the moment, my fingerless gloves are my favorite item to make. I am always wearing a pair while I work.

My Knit Hats for Men have to be the best selling item.

I love the water! I could sit and create all day by the waterside.
