  • About This Artist

    I design and knit fully-fashioned, one-of-a-kind and small batch clothing with virtually zero waste. Each piece is handcrafted on a hand-powered knitting machine using quality yarns made from natural fibers. Some pieces also include hand-embroidery and painting, offering an additional layer of intimacy and tenderness to the wearer. I believe craft has the power to connect us to each other and our surroundings with empathy and compassion.

  • Q&A With This Artist

    A: Each piece is handcrafted on a hand-powered knitting machine using quality yarns made from natural fibers (merino wool, cotton, linen). Some pieces also include hand-embroidery and painting, offering an additional layer of intimacy and tenderness to the wearer. Sometimes I paint on the pieces after they have been knit. Other times I knit yardage, paint on the knitted yardage, unravel it, rewind it into spools of hand-painted yarn, and then combine the hand-painted yarn with other yarns to knit unique garments.

    A: I believe craft has the power to connect us to each other and our surroundings with empathy and compassion. When we surround ourselves with craft we are reminded of our shared humanity. We take care. We slow. We consider. I am particularly interested in how handmade textiles worn on the body provide a sense of intimacy, tenderness, and connection...something we all need in this time of social distancing.

    A: In this digital age of slick screens and quick images, I craft objects that promote slow viewing experiences and intimate, tactile engagements. In this time of social distancing I take solace knowing that my wearables can provide another with both warmth and joy.
