Oh hi, it's me!
So Etsy wrote an article about me and I could not be more humbled, appreciative, grateful and amazed.
I've been designing things my whole life (truly, I remember being 4 or 5 and cutting up a dress because I thought it would be better as a skirt and shirt) but I don't think I've really ever felt like a 'designer' until this year and maybe even until reading this article and realizing that there are people out there who get it and who enjoy the things that I make.
I was such a design school misfit because I spent so much time researching and thinking not just about how people use things but why and why things become special and meaningful. Almost 2 decades later, I feel like that research and thinking is what draws people to what I do.
Huge thanks to the Etsy team for putting this together and for the encouragement!
