I have always had a passion for fabric, textile design and handwork. When I discovered the simple geometric designs of the Japanese craft of Sashiko, I was captivated. These modern looking patterns in fact date back over 500 years and where originally used as a mending, and quilting technique, on clothing and household goods. My work combines the authentic hand stitching techniques and patterns with modern colors and materials to produce contemporary products with the simple beauty of Japanese style.
I began my full time career producing and promoting Sashiko in 2008. My interests have always been in fibre arts, I attended Grant MacEwan Community College and graduated from the Design Art Program. I have since had items placed with the Focus on Fibre Art Association and have had works exhibited at the Edmonton Art Gallery.
