My background in fiber arts began as a kid in Connecticut, sewing and crafting, and grew into a pursuit of a degree in fiber arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design (B.F.A. Fibers, 1999). My original major was sequential art (comic book geek), but tactile fibers drew me back in. I still draw pictures, too! I'm a former yarn shop owner, and was the creative mind (and hands) behind Kitchen Sink Dyeworks. I love combining texture and color, the thrill of a curve or angle falling right into place, and love sharing the resulting patterns.
