I grew up in New England, close to the forest and the sea. I moved to the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, 43 years ago, to study environmental sciences, and 20 years ago, I shifted gears and began following my passion for designing Wearable Art using local plant materials for eco prints, natural dyes, fibers, and fabrics. It is so important to me to create and hand-make stylish, comfortable clothing, accessories & home decor that are flattering & healthy for you and for the planet. I have been teaching in person since 2010 and online since 2020. I find I can be so much more complete in my online Workshops since students have more time to absorb the material. I now provide my in-person students with access to my online material & they love it!
