Pillows & Throws (7)
Descended from a long line of talented craftspeople and artisans, I grew up in a busy household surrounded by art and craft. And now I'm carrying forward the tradition of those creative fine-craft roots. Through Fish Eye Sisters, I'm finally pursuing my dream of making a living making things, and I've been working towards this goal full-time since January 2016.
I'm largely self-taught and an enthusiastic experimenter. My passion is coming up with new twists on traditional techniques. A large stash of wool, amassed since I began rug hooking in 1999, was the inspiration behind my current focus on sewing and quilting with wool.
Pillows and blankets, table mats and runners, as well as a limited number of hand-hooked pillows and rugs, are all made with care and attention to detail by just me, in my home studio just north of Huntsville, Ontario, Canada.
WHY WE'RE ONE OF A KIND
I combine my own patterns, designs, and techniques, with my own hand dyed wool fabrics to create work that is truly original. It's a modern twist on tradition and people say they've never seen anything quite like it before!
Wool fabric - much of which I hand-dye myself - is the main ingredient in my current line-up of finished goods.My second staple is Japanese double-sided cotton fabric.
