“I believe that passion drives talent and creativity.”
“I wanted to make a really sweet and precious gift for my youngest niece so I learned embroidery in order to make her a set of dolls.”
Why is making handmade goods important to you?
Working with my hands is meditative. Whether I am screen printing patterns or embroidering samples, I have to slow down and concentrate on what's directly in front of me.
Who inspires you do to what you do?
My nieces really inspire me. They're so happy when I make them a toy or a painting. I love the idea of giving others the chance to make something with their own hands to give to their favorite little one.
What is the first thing you think about when you wake up?
Making a pot of coffee... until my first cup I don't think of much else.
