Growing up with a very creative mother and sisters meant that art and cooking projects were a constant in our warm home. When I declared, at 9 years old, that I wanted to learn to sew, my mom promptly sent me to the Singer sewing shop at the mall. One bungled tennis dress later, the foundation of my self-taught style and business was laid out.
The next layer would be added that same year, when I took art lessons at the Toledo Museum of Art where I learned my primary and secondary colors. The inklings of a business was planted! That has lead to my whimsical style of painting, drawing & hand-cut wobbly designs.
I am inspired always by looking around me...the sidewalk cracks, the way old bricks lay out, the colors of tulips on a farm in the pacific northwest, and the stones on a beach in Italy.
