Textile artist, embroidery designer, and creator of mystical garments and cosmically crafted textiles.
I teach from the belief that through creative expression, we discover our power to transform our worlds.
Thanks to my mothers love of fiber arts, I was basically born with a needle and thread in hand. Despite this early immersion, my stitches were somehow never quite even enough, neat enough, or tiny enough, and I spent years thinking I wasn't all that great at embroidery.
Luckily, I eventually realized my wonky stitches were a style of their own, and began to teach others who wanted creative expression - not perfection - to be the goal of their artwork.
After nearly a decade of working in the fashion industry, I discovered my true passion - textile arts education - and have been teaching in person workshops since 2013.
Thanks to a background in both fine arts and fashion design, I'm able to weave the independence of a creative practice together with refined methods like hand embroidery in a way that loosens up expectations and allows you to feel the freedom of painting with threads!
