I am a student of knitting technology and design as well as a dedicated hand-knitter.
I received a Bachelor in Fine Art at Kansas City Art Institute, double majoring in Fine Art and Art History. My Fine Art studies were focused on fibers and textiles. There I learned to knit, weave, dye, embroider, felt, and manipulate fiber in a myriad of other ways. Although I still participate in many of the greater fiber craft activities, my passion is knitting.
In 2014 I received a Master in Art from Philadelphia University (now known as Jefferson University). My focus was in Textile Design: Knit.
Currently, I work as an accounts manager and a member of the design team at Kelbourne Woolens. I am also an Adjunct Professor at Jefferson University, where I teach Knit Design Studio. I am always knitting and designing in my spare time.
