Growing up, I was always busy with my hands, whether painting, stitching, knitting, needlepoint or punch needle. I would have loved to have made a career out of selling my art, but practical minds and voices prevailed. For decades I sold to wholesales other peoples art and designs. This include licensing Beatrix Potter, Teresa Kogut and many other artists through the years. This remained until I landed at Accord Publishing. Where I was instrumental in creating page a day calendars for the crafting world. Specifically Knitting, Cross-stitch and Quilting calendars. I also worked with many designers, but two truly stood out and influenced me. Kam Snyder and Barb Stark of Ewe and Eye and Friends. With their needlepoint, cross-stitch and small retail store in Denver, I was mesmerized by the love and joy their designs emulated. Fast forward to today and I am working on my own line of designs to do the same.
Working on new pieces, whether stitched, punched, pieced or pierced, I love the art of designing for the home. I hope my designs and pieces your find here bring you as much joy as they did me while making them.
