I have always been drawn to details and design. My first memories of life are of what I or those around me were wearing. And now- all these years later- thinking creatively, surrounded by color and texture is where I love to be. My instincts have always drawn me to think outside the box, away from conventional or ultra trendy designs and come up with fresh ideas, combine objects, patterns and colors that donâ€™t classically mesh. My growing collection of vintage clothing patterns has given me the challenge and thrill of working with and adapting designs for a modern day flattery and functionability. At Craft Lake City this summer I will have handmade bags of various size and function, quilts, banners, aprons, skirts and perhaps a few other textile surprises.
