My career started with sewing my own clothes in my teens and progressed to learning the art of lace making including traditional bobbin lace. For a decade I was a self-taught weaver specializing in production of intricate patterns for traditional coverlets and silks for designer handbags. After taking ribbon art classes with Candice Kling in the 90’s, I both taught classes and designed and sold my own ribbon flowers. After many years of study I have been awarded three certificates from the City and Guilds of London Institute in Design, Embroidery and Textile Decorations.
Today, while still pursing my art, I use all these experiences to curate and sell ribbons, trims, and textiles to those with similar interests and passions.
