About me

Occupation Doll Maker and Weaver
Location North Carolina Mountains
Introduction I have been making things with my hands as long as I can remember. I began weaving and doll making over 35 years ago, and have also become a quilter, rug hooker and maker of mixed media objects. The main focus of the studio is whimsical, soft sculpture dolls/animals, using hand dyed wool fabric, embroidery/stitching, vintage buttons and collected objects; and it includes hand woven scarves, rugs and linens. The studio is located in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina where my best friend and husband Pog and I share our home with our kitty Sadie.
Interests I am an avid collector of just about anything old, odd or primitive. Some of my collections include: buttons, quilts, firkins, pottery and yellow ware bowls.
