I love to create, sew, and teach, and I’ve been doing some form of all of these since grade school. The art and craft of textiles are my passion as well as my profession. I enjoy inspiring others to express their unique ideas through textiles.
I have been a costumer (from professional Theatre to children’s Halloween costumes), a custom clothier, and a seamstress for the active wear industry. In addition to teaching sewing, weaving, and design fundamentals to students of all ages, I create and market textile art for interiors.
My goal for students is to learn the skills they need to sew or weave on their own. I encourage self-expression as well as competence. It’s thrilling to see my students gain confidence and enthusiasm in their craft.
