My grandmothers were the reason I love hand-work and crafts so much. As soon as I was able to manage a needle and thread, they gave me craft-related responsibilities abound.

Currently, I'm an illustrator and graphic designer working freelance out of Munich and sometimes Miami. I also try my hand out in knitwear design and typography.
The Cambridge Shrug is a sweet, fuzzy shrug inspired by Catherine "Kate" Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. It best evokes the shrug that Kate Middleton wore for her wedding reception when it is knit in fuzzy yarn with a soft halo.
