Meet the Maker:

WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am a wife and mom of 4 and a maker of of little human clothes. I have lived in the CSRA for about 23 years so, this is where I am from now.

DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
Well, I’m kind of a fly by the seat of my pants kind of person. I really just look for fabrics I love and go from there.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I love Pinterest and Instagram. There are so many creative people out there and they really inspire me.

FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I can’t really think of anything ‘fun’ except I have 4 kids ages 17 down to 3. My 3 year old son is LOADS of fun. Does that count?

FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
All the old buildings! I love the uniqueness of them. I just love looking at them and imagining what they looked like when they were new! And daydreaming about remolding one and opening up a cute little boutique one day!

WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
It’s just in me. The way God created me. He is a creator himself and I know he placed in each of us a gift or talent. He even says he does. When he’s giving Moses instructions for the tabernacle he say he says in Exodus 31:6 ....I have given skill to all the craftsmen... Now, I know he’s speaking about the ones in charge of building the tabernacle but I believe this to be true today. It’s reasuring to think that this strange desire I have to make things is intentional. Placed in me before I was even born! It’s not just a whim or a useless talent. When we use our gift no matter what it is big or small it all part of the bigger picture being made by the Master artist.

WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Keep trying new things, keep learning, never stop experimenting. It’s all part of the process and fun!
