My children think I've become a hippy. My mother can't imagine why people would pay me to teach them to quilt and dye fabric. She thinks I like making bedspreads. I'm a dyer and fiber artist, living with 2 Standard Poodles, 1 Manx cat and 2 cockatiels. I' currently live in New Zealand's southernmost city, Invercargill, where I'm completing a 3 year degree in Visual Arts.
