I’m from Nova Scotia, went to university in Ontario, lived in Newfoundland for a bit, and now reside in the Northwest Territories, with my husband, the floatplane, and snowmachines named George and Fred. When not busy with my day job, I can be found enjoying outdoor adventure in the Canadian north or indulging obsessions with knitting, quilting, and pottery. Arts and crafts have always been an integral part of my life. I can't even remember learning to knit and embroider other than knowing that my grandmother helped me out at first.
