I'm a multi-medium designer, and I live in Southern California. I have over 20 years of experience with fiber arts, such as knit and crochet. I also have experience with sewing, clay sculpting, embroidery, painting, and jewelry making. I pull inspiration from my family and the world around me. I love to incorporate color in my work.
After years of being a bearer of handmade gifts, in 2013 I went into business making primarily amigurumi (crocheted stuffed toys), and custom hand knit satin lined hats. In 2019 I shifted from solely selling finished objects, to blogging and creating patterns/DIY tutorials. I no longer take custom orders, so that I can maintain my lifestyle balance.
My main goal with my business is to have fun and learn more! My second goal is to create things that showcase and celebrate the beauty of Black people. Since we are underrepresented in so many areas, I want to do my part to elevate and uplift our image in a positive way.
I was born in San Diego, and I've lived here my whole life. I am a wife, and a mom of 4 (2 boys, 2 girls). I spent 8 years in the US Navy, as a Master-at-Arms (military police). Now, I work from home while I'm in college getting my degree in chemistry. My career goals aren't fully set because I have embraced a "go-with-the-flow" mentality. I find joy in the little things such as cloudy skies and rainbows, and I often stop to smell the roses.
