I live in Smithville, Tennessee - a rural town on Center Hill Lake, 1 ¼ hours east of Nashville, Tennessee.
My studios – a printing room and sewing space - are situated within my home
(I haven’t taken over the entire house… yet)!
The spaces are intimate yet fully functional; and when I am not gardening or cooking, they are where I happily spend my day.
I screen print and relief block print on fabric, specializing in distinctive textiles for daily use: cooking & garden/craft aprons, flour sack towels, potholder and buffet napkin sets, bandanas, and infinity scarves.
Both studios are critical to what I create. The print studio looks out on my veggie and flower garden where much of my design inspirations originate. It accommodates one padded print table, storage for my silk screens & squeegees, printing blocks and cutting tools, textile pigments, sink, essential tools, and gardening “stuff.”
My sewing space, once a spare bedroom, houses yards of fabric, a Serger, my grandmother’s 1941 Singer featherweight sewing machine, cutting table, rotary iron, copious tools, and thread.
