Coming from a world of sewing machines and fabric, I learned to tell my stories through drawing and sculpting with thread. I’m all about using unexpected materials and incorporating intricate detail into my pieces, all while raising awareness for important issues such as landfill waste and the beauty of recycled materials. My 12 foot longarm is my trusty sidekick as I bring my ideas to life, creating pieces that aim to touch not only the eye, but also the heart. Join me on this journey of combining art and sustainability, one stitch at a time.

I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.
