I've got Busy Hands Syndrome. My hands must always be busy making. That's how I ended up with an art degree. It's how I managed to spend two months covering a car in Sharpie marker. It's how I decided I must learn to knit, and then to spin the yarn to knit with, and then to dye the wool to spin the yarn. It's how I started painting late at night after the kids went to bed, and it's how I fell in love with the spontaneity of watercolors, and the ways they bleed together so fascinatingly. 

I'm originally from Portland, Oregon, but I ended up at the University of Hawai’i studying glass sculpture and graduating with a BFA. After working in Antarctica, getting married, and spending several years in Japan, I returned to Hawaii with my husband and our two small kids. I currently live on the island of Oahu, where I’m usually dividing my time between my family, my studio, and whatever I’m currently knitting (ok, it’s mostly socks).

If you'd like to see my recent projects or snippets of my everyday life, my favorite place to post about them is on instagram. Follow me there to stay up-to-date!
