I've been an avid crocheter since I was 14. I received my BA in Fine Arts from San Francisco State University where I studied with weaver Candace Crockett, sculptor Stephen De Staebler, and ceramicist David Kuraoka, among others. In the early 2000s I became a Craft Yarn Council of America Certified Crochet Instructor. I developed a series of popular classes and workshops that I taught in the San Francisco Bay Area and nationally for many years. I sold my crocheted jewelry and accessories at many art festivals in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2012 I moved to Pittsburgh, PA where I sold my work at The Gallery on 43rd Street and Robin's Nest. Sadly, both galleries have closed. I'm currently looking for new venues. I'm also planning to start teaching again. You can purchase my latest work through my website.
Jewelry and accessories not only enhance what you wear, but are a great way to express your individuality. The right piece of jewelry, a beautifully draped scarf, or that special handbag can take an outfit from blah to wow! With a crochet hook and a strand of fiber I create unique jewelry, accessories, and home goods for people who value fine craftsmanship and originality.
I'm a Craft Yarn Council of America Certified Crochet Instructor. And yes, I can teach both right and left handed students! I'm planning to start teaching again, soon after the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. My first course will be for Absolute Beginners. I'll post details as soon as I have them.
