Our favourite things tell stories of wear and tear and joy. What I love to do is source and sew second hand textiles that have been passed on or passed over into new, joyous, favourite things for others.
I create for comfort and usefulness, and am fascinated by the intersection of domesticity and craft; of how art fits into our everyday lives.
Why fabric? Working with textiles connects me to my mother, who has been an avid seamstress throughout her life, and to my grandmother, whose quilting bees with the ladies from church in the basement of her mod 60’s house I fondly remember. Fabric connects us all from the blankets we snuggle with to the layers with which we clothe ourselves.
I care about beauty in the everyday, cultivating thoughtfulness and understanding for our world and environment, and doing work that is aligned with my values as best I can.
I hope you enjoy my work and that it connects you with rich memories of your own.
