The creation of labor intensive, carefully tested designs is where I thrive. Inspired by the processes and production of work preceding the Industrial Revolution, I am largely self-taught and find new lessons to learn every day in my work.
Pushing the limits of artistic methods and techniques is something that defines my craft. Hand embroidery, mold casting, painting, fiber work, and botanical design are just a few of the mediums I use. Finding new ways to use these tools helps me to create my own niche in a world filled with so many wonderful artists and designers.
As with any occupation, design can be frustrating at times, but seeing my pieces go off to new homes is such a great reward! I have a few treasured collaborators and assistants who act as my sounding board and (try) to keep me sane.
May my designs bring you as much joy as they do to me.
