I have always felt compelled to make art. When I was little, growing up in the Metro-Detroit area, my mom taught me how to crochet which turned me onto other techniques like embroidery and sewing, which I mostly learned without formal training.
The older I get the more meaning and challenges I find in my work, the connection to family and experiences that have brought me to this point in time.Handmade items have always given me a great satisfaction that only building and creating with my hands can give. The basis of my work comes from the need for connection to loved ones and the nostalgic experiences that shape us into who we are. In other words, I'm interested in exploring the fiber between us.
Sometimes folks ask me if I do custom orders and the answer is: Yes! Email me and let's chat!
