I am a student of knitting technology and design as well as a dedicated and rather obsessed hand-knitter. I am a devotee of the loop. Fabrics, knit and otherwise, are such a constant part of our lives that they are often overlooked. I love the fact that everyone has fabric and yet few people know anything about it. I find knitted fabric fascinating and never tire of learning what a very long piece of thread or yarn can do to make one warm, cool, and fabulous.
I received a Bachelors 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. I live to knit!
I am now eager to explore all aspects and forms of knitting, hand, and machine, and apply that to a fulfilling career in design.
