In her own words:  "I have always had a love of art and design , and have taught myself whatever technique I needed to create my wearable art pieces. Some of my pieces are sewn (ribbon shawls), some are woven (chunky scarves) and some are knitted. This is why my shop has so many different sections .. I am now exploring and creating a new technique for designing shawls and scarves. These new pieces are light and airy and most unusual. These intriguing pieces are are done in the Free Lace technique. They are made with flowing ribbons, gentle yarns and lots of care. I have expanded my wearable art line to include the art of millinery. You will find wonderful hair accessories, hats, and fascinators done in a variety of techniques. Some of my hats are knitted and felted...some are blocked and steamed and some are simple hair jewelry such as clips or headbands."
