Hello! I’m a lifelong artist, crafter, designer, and DIY aficionado. Some of my favorite mediums include paper mâché, paper crafting, soft sculpture, collage, costume design, quilting, crochet, stop motion animation, calligraphy, illustration, floral design, painting and woodworking....I like it all!

Originally from Mississippi, I now call Brooklyn my home. When I’m not elbow deep in one craft or another, I can be found hiking, biking, studying wild edible plants, playing guitar and singing country music. Drop me a line and say "hi".
