I am an artist. Anything I can get my hands on. I left my full time job two years to take care of my two boys on my own, and chose to pursue my passion of fiber art. I started crochet years ago, and in the last 3 1/2 years have found a love for dyeing yarn!
I have been a long time artist….as long as I can remember, in fact. I was in awe of my art teacher in elementary school, who was also a jewelry designer. Amazed by my art teacher in high school, she was amazing at every art medium she touched! And I was a liberal arts major in college. Undecided on what I wanted to do once I got out, I decided to leave and work full time until I figured life out, something I still regret to this day. I have still kept my hand in art as much as I could throughout the years. I have a love of painting and drawing, something that I just can’t let go of. Five years ago I learned how to crochet watching videos, and instantly fell in love, I mean, it is wearable art! About a year later I tried my hand at dyeing, again, instant love connection. Painting + yarn… What could be better? I started out like probably a lot of dyers do, just as a hobby, but that wasn’t enough for me. I invested some money into acid dyes in various colors and couldn’t believe the amazing yarn that was coming out of my dyeing pot!! That is when I knew, this is what I wanted to do!
