My lifelong passion for design, especially textile and fiber arts, began in my youth. Though my mother taught me to knit when I was around 8, what I really wanted to learn was crochet, but no one in my family knew how. I taught myself out of a book, and I haven't put down a hook since!
Design plays a large role in my life. I have a design degree, and my career as an interior designer keeps me on top of the latest trends. I also love to sew, especially elaborate Victorian period costumes. But through it all has been my crochet. Finally I realized that it was time to combine my love of design with my love of crochet and begin a new adventure as a crochet designer!
In my designs, my focus is on wearable crochet: garments and accessories. My favorite items both to design and wear are cardigans. I have a deep love of the detailed and intricate; so my designs are often geared toward the intermediate to advanced crocheter looking for technical interest. I have a particular passion of Tunisian crochet, especially Tunisian lace.
