I first started working with needle and thread when I was about 8 or 9 years old. My mom taught me how to cross stitch with Christmas kits (still her favorites to this day), and my Dad designed cross stitch patterns of Star Trek starships and symbols. It wasn't until the age of 30 that I came back to the world of decorative embroidery.
I love researching extant texts like The Voynich Manuscript, Claude Paradin's 1557 book Devises Heroiques, and the 11th century Bayeux Tapestry as well as esoteric occult texts. I find inspiration in symbols and images from these and other sources, and the process of learning about the origins of symbology invigorates my imagination. Any time I can mix history, nature, beautiful imagery, and research into my designs, I jump at the chance.
I love sharing knowledge and educating others about the beauty, intrigue, and eccentricities of things that inspire me. I hope you'll join me.
