I’ve been a knitter, spinner & dyer for 25 years. My business has taken me all over the country, doing craft shows, and fiber shows from California to Vermont. In 1987 I opened a store in Putney, Vt.

I designed and dyed millspun yarns, purchasing fibers from Vermont Farmers as well as raising my own Angora Rabbits, and Angora Goats. I have since moved to PA and AR.

I started making Lampwork Glass Beads in 1998 and began bead crochet and then subsequently Kumihimo.

My current focus is on dyeing materials, silk ribbons and yarns, for the art of Japanese Braiding know as Kumihimo. I continue to make glass beads and jewelry combing the braids I make from my hand dyed fibers and the glass beads I create in my studio.

I have discovered a wonderful new medium called “Crystal Clay”. I am able to indulge my love of sparkle and crystals to make one of a kind jewelry pieces.

I currently live in a small house on the edge of the National Forest in Western Arkansas with one cat ( Amber) and two horses and a small flower garden.
