We had the opportunity to travel to Japan for work this month. I’ve always loved the equal amounts of tradition and technology that you find in every aspect of life in Japan. The reverance and passion for food, aesthetics, architecture, nature and cuteness is contagious. Here’s a photo journal of our explorations.
For me, one of the great passions in life is to sit in my studio with a needle and thread, simply creating something that makes people smile. This is a skill that has been handed down from generation to generation, as both of my grandmothers were textile artists along with my mother and now myself.
This is my website, which houses all of my creatures, who are sewn with love, and created from felts and pre-loved fabrics. I am proud to continue the legacy of an ancient craft that once was considered a woman’s virtue, yet sadly is becoming forgotten.
My other love in life, photography will soon be featured on my site. In the meantime, and forever, the site will house my blog, including updates of illustrations, photography, sewn creatures, and coming features and projects. So please subscribe and most importantly, enjoy!
