Welcome to My World!
I’ve always been involved in creative activities, playing with mom’s sewing machine before I was four (I managed to put the needle through my finger 😊) and exploring a multitude of art and crafts with my mother. I took art in school and considered a career in interior design but lacked the confidence to pursue a creative path immediately following graduation. I started an Arts degree, until I discovered courses in textiles and design. While a textiles major wasn’t available, I transferred faculties and took all the textile design courses available. One of my lecturers was also a textile artist and she inspired me to continue my studies at art school after graduation.
My time at art school was cut short because I fell in love six weeks before the program started. I completed the first-year course, 2700 km away from my future husband but struggled with the challenges of a long-distance romance.
