Connecting my handmade work to my interest in environmental sustainability has been a major focus of my business from the start. I have been an organic gardener for over 20 years, majored in Environmental Studies in college, and have long worked with natural materials. In creating functional, beautiful items by hand, I use stones, wood and plants, both foraged and cultivated in our garden. I choose to work with organic cotton, sustainable fibers, non-toxic dyes and when possible, materials manufactured in the USA. My studio is located in the Casket Arts Bldg. in the NE Art's District of Minneapolis, MN.
