I’m a Hamilton, Ontario maker who has deep affection for textiles and words.

My studio is happily on the main floor of my home, which means that at any given moment I am surrounded by: guinea pigs, our cat, rabbits, the sounds of the neighbourhood kids, the smell of coffee, a child wandering by with something from the snack cupboard in hand, a teenager with math questions, or a husband on a Zoom work call.

My studio is continually striving for sustainability. I am curious about ingenious ways to sequester synthetic textiles and the practical application of waste as a resource instead of a problem. I hope to reuse existing materials instead of asking the earth for more.

Mend when torn

Patch when worn

Make into something new

Pass on to someone true
