Crochet & Amigurumi
My mom taught me how to crochet when I was a teenager and ever since then I have been experimenting with crocheting soft sculptures and fun wearable pieces. I get very bored doing standard designs so when tasked with making things such as hats, scarves, and blankets I always like to think of a way to make them unique and unconventional. Most of my amigurumi (crochet/knitted toys) are completely freehand and even those that don't only loosely follow a general pattern I've designed since I often use the same sort of shapes or sometimes want to make multiples. Other than crocheting an army of mermaids, I don't typically like to make the same things over and over again. When I do make multiples I always like to give each ones something a little unique to set it apart.
Art & Jewelry
I started making jewelry when I was a teen and have recently picked it up again. My designs are generally very simple in structure but usually very colorful and sparkly. When photographing my most recent jewelry pieces I decided to use art from my college portfolio as a backdrop.
