I live with my husband in a small house with a big garden on Cape Cod.  In between growing things, cooking, reading, and enjoying the outdoors, I knit.

Growing up in a creative home filled with items handmade with love, it was inevitable that I ended up in a career in the arts.

I find inspiration all around me in my seaside home.  The ocean, wildlife, flowers, and even summer tourists provide me with infinite design possibilities.  I have developed my own signature style which includes lots of color, fanciful 3D add-ons, and tons of texture.

In this current world of instant gratification and mass-manufacturing, I strive to emphasize the value of handmade and focus on the process itself.  I feel the tactile, sensory process of knitting deserves quality materials and I use mainly yarn from independent mills and farms in the U.S.A.  Raised, dyed, and spun by people who are as proud and passionate about what they do as I am.

I donate the prototype children's hats I create during the design process to sick children at several local Children's Hospitals.  I hope that they help to turn a tear into a smile on a little one's face.

Thanks for stopping by.
Warm wishes,
