make life better

Embroidered Self-Portrait, 2015

At a time when I thought I might never live in a place of my own choosing, I started this website. I wrote about experiencing life and creating home in a million places, and finding the bright side when I needed to get better at that. It has also become the place where I share what I make, and where I sell what I make, and where I publicly reconcile my love of clothing, textiles, and fibers with my concern for their environmental impact.

I am thrilled to be back in Minnesota to raise my family, something I never thought would work out. However, there remain more opportunities than ever to reach for the bright side.

I wear several creative hats, including developing this website, designing and making knit products that I sell, and working in a local yarn shop. I also sew a little, creating illustrations and drafting patterns for garments. I gravitate towards natural fibers and clean lines, and always enjoy doing things by hand. I prefer sturdy denim, cozy sweaters, clogs, orderly closets, wooden pencils, life over lifestyle, writing alongside making, and the long way home.

Thank you for stopping by.
