I'm from Greenfield, Indiana (I currently live in Tel Aviv, Israel) and as far back as I can remember, I've been making things! I'm inspired by my three girls and a love for animals. I make toys (by needle felting and sewing) because I'm still a kid at heart! Visit my website: to read about my art, travels and experiences in the Middle East.
