Bio

I am a designer, chocolatier, and modern quilter living in my native Portland, Oregon! I create each piece myself in my studio. I create original paper cut works, screen-printed textiles, modern quilts and quilt chocolate!
Inspiration:
I am inspired by things made by hand, textiles, flora and fauna, domestic life, folk art, and my amazing hometown of Portland, Oregon.
Background:
I graduated with a degree in Sculpture from Portland State University and I also studied Accessory Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. I have spent the past 10 years working in the footwear industry as a product, color and material designer.  Thanks for visiting my blog!
