Bay Area California

I am a creative person by trade. Collaborating with clients on new shapes and colors is exhilarating, and a job I thoroughly enjoy. When a customer leaves my shop they take my art with them; they wear it, and love it, and show it off. Crafting gives me the opportunity to create things that are wholly my own. Taking time to make something, simply for the joy of it, is a completely relaxing experience. This is why I am a Craftsian :)
