Who am I?

I’m from the Great Lakes and I’ve been making things for as long as I can remember.

My ever-so-crafty parents made sure that I got opportunities to at least try my hand at all manner of creative disciplines as I grew. (Thanks, you two!) The end result is that if a skill involves needles, hooks, blades, wire, string, beads, paper, or fire in any capacity, I’ve likely tried it.

From everything I’ve tried, I singled out textile arts as my area of expertise so these days I mostly work with fabric and string; but I’m perfectly willing to step out and into other genres of making when the fancy strikes.

My academic background is in science, biology and ecology to be specific, so you can expect that to appear in my posts. (I’m sure you’ve already seen some.) Rest assured that you’ll learn from it and, at the very least, pick up some practical science for everyday life.

In my history I’ve worked as a library page (the mysterious entity that reshelves materials and maintains organization) and circulation clerk, volunteer animal keeper with nocturnal mammals and owls, and occasionally taught quilting.
