I have been creating with my hands since I was a young girl. My academic studies led me to a M. S. degree in Chemical Engineering. The pursuit of that career was put on hold with the birth of my first child and the gift of my first sewing machine. On that machine, I have stitched hundreds of miles, producing clothes and accessories for myself, kids, friends and family. I also enjoy knitting, crocheting and crafting. These pursuits have enabled me to enjoy creative outlets and maintain a sense of sanity while raising four children, three of whom are currently teens!
I love jazz, standards, instrumental, opera, musical soundtracks - just about everything! Some of my favorite artists: Jamie Cullum, Harry Connick,
Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell
Knitting, sewing, reading, searching for beach glass.
