What is a typical day like in your studio?
I work from home. How do I work? I don't stop. I move from room to room depending on what needs to get done today. My husband and I have set up different rooms in our home studio to maximize efficiency in production mode, since we both run our own businesses from home. Staying organized is key. I have my sewing room, mixed media corner, and mono-printing station in the garage where my hand-painted fabrics are created.
Tell us a little bit about how you got into sewing?
My grandmother, a woman of paramount importance in my life, gifted her sewing machines to me. I then reached out to a former high school teacher, Mres. Peggy Sadelfeld, for lessons. On the weekends, I would drive home to Naples, six hours each way for lessons. She was an amazing mentor who gave me the skill set I needed to make my dream a reality.
