So many things to say but where to start? I began sewing while I was studying biology at Indiana University but didn't get serious about it until I was pregnant and could no longer work the environmental consulting job I had. I decided that, even though I didn't even own a sewing machine, I would make my little a quilt and the rest is history as they say!
Before leaving my job to become a domestic scientist, I worked as a biologist specializing in raptor ecology. I have a strong background in molecular biology and population genetics. I have worked many an odd job; everything from caring for tiger cubs to eagle nest surveys by helicopter. I have a Masters in Biology from Boise State University and, at times, I dearly miss the hard sciences. I have found that sewing provides me with a similar technical and creative outlet. Additionally, I run a personal color analysis business which has given me a strong foundation in color theory. If you're curious, my color analysis website can be found here.
When I am not sewing, I enjoy tie-dyeing, soap making, organic gardening, birding, traveling, and live music. I currently live in Southern California with my husband and our beautiful boys, Ukiah and Kavik.
