The very first memory I have of feeling the thrill of being creative was when I was about 10 years old. I was at my one and only friend’s house and we decided to play “I Dream of Jeanie”. Of course, since she had beautiful long, silky blonde hair, she got to be Jeanie, which left me as Nelson. So, to make myself feel better about pretending to be the guy, I told her I had to have a suit jacket. So we rummaged through her mom’s fabric and proceeded to use her mom’s sewing machine to create a man’s suit jacket. I don’t really think it turned out (since we had zero experience in sewing), but in my mind all I recall is how much fun the possibility of creating something from nothing was. And here I am 40 years later, still preferring to make up my own designs instead of following a pattern.
The past few years I’ve been on the fast track to solidifying my creative mission. While owning my own mixed media retail and consignment shop a few years ago, I developed my very own line of products. The best way for you to become familiar with my products is hands-on. This is why I teach regularly on how to create beautiful pieces of art using my products and the mixed stitch concept.
