Meet the Maker:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
I moved to Columbia SC in 1995 and then to North Augusta SC in 2005. I am a nurse, a reiki master, a meditation teacher and an artist. My art is inspired by what I see hiking on local trails. I make dream catchers, pine needle baskets, witch bells and intention dolls.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
I gather pine needles while hiking; only the best needles will do! I seal them in vegetable glycerin and let them dry. I use waxed cord and a darning needle to hand stitch the basket together. The process can take a few hours to several days depending on how large or detailed the basket is.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I ride a motorcycle and you can find me and my Beloved at local DT Augusta spots enjoying the many excellent restaurants!
The restaurants! New Moon for breakfast, Mellow Mushroom for lunch, Pho Ramen for dinner!
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
Creating is our genius. It allows us to express ourselves in our most authentic way!
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
The more we tap into our authenticity, the easier our art comes.
