I am born and raised in the Midwest. Nothing makes me happier than when I'm creating, so that's what I do. I weave with re-purposed fibers and create woven wall hangings. I also teach watercolor painting lessons (ages K-12) in my studio. Collecting vintage clothing and home decor items keeps what little free time I have occupied, and if none of those things appeal to me, I'm probably looking at blogs or DIYing something.
