Growing up in the soulful mountains of Northeast Tennessee, my own sense of self is enriched with the history of Appalachian Folk Art and handicrafts. I learned to crochet when I was five years old, and from then my eyes have only opened wider to a world of vivid imagery created by fiber. After three decades, I continue to explore new art forms, such as knitting, hand and machine sewing, needle felting, yarn spinning, and more.
Muddled Muse Mountain Arts celebrates the
tradition and workmanship of our Appalachian grandmothers while adding a
modern twist. I create embroidered wall art, rag dolls, and textile accessories using
many of the same techniques that have been taught through generations. Each piece
is meant to inspire, opening the windows to the creative soul.
