I create with my energy flow and intuition. Creating tactile rich art is one of
my greatest forms of self-expression. Everything I create stems from an
intention. I link our personal human evolution & self-growth into my work. I
aspire to help people discover their authentic voice, connect to themselves,
find inner peace, create joy in their lives, flourish in nature and honor the
I love working with a wide variety of media to keep my products fresh,
and so I can continue to innovate and design. I predominately work with my
alpaca fiber from our small herd. I use yarn to weave and knit clothing and
accessories, and to create textiles that I use for a variety of products
including pillows, handbags and more. Another one of my passions is
healing crystals. I love using natural stones from the Earth to create jewelry
and accessories that bring joy and comfort to those who are drawn to them.
I also create products from a Yogic perspective, as a teacher and
practitioner, I embody Yoga or Union and incorporate the philosophy
behind the practice. Those products include eye pillows, malas, crystal
bundles and rugs for meditation. Through my art, I hope to inspire others to
tap into their own creativity, connect to themselves more deeply and find
joy through beautiful products that are one-of-a-kind.
