Sewing with knits
I have drawn and painted since childhood, where I analyzed the natural world by recreating it on paper. I continued this exploration of the world through my pencils and brushes into high school and college, where I received a BA in Studio Arts.
My fiber arts education began with needle and thread at the age of three, sewing small pillows. I was sewing my own clothes throughout middle and high school, and have sewn everything from swimwear to fully-boned formal wear.
Though I first learned to knit when I was seven, I recently re-taught myself the skill and have quickly expanded my skills in this area to expert-level advanced knitting.
Most recently, I have added Wheel and Hand Spinning yarn to my repertoire of skills. I look forward to seeing the creative avenues this new skill will provide.
