Growing up in the wilderness of northern British Columbia, colour has always been a huge part of my life. As a child I was the always the one elbow deep in the finger paints, glorying at the amazing way colours would mix. As an adult I made the move from Canada to London for a masters degree in Fine Art Painting at Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2006. In 2013 I found the perfect combination - my ability to mix subtle, glowing paint glazes with my steadily growing passion for knitting and all things yarn-y. You can find my yarns on my etsy shop - KettleYarnCo There is also a Kettle Yarn Co. Ravelry group, so come over and join us for a chat!
