Each sakura is individually hand crocheted and then embroidered detail is added to the cotton. Along with Summer, Fall and a unique Winter scroll I am looking forward to a gallery showing in Tokyo this fall. Love how the hand embroidered accents really make this design pop!

My work is very tactile, 2D & 3D textiles and often takes organic forms inspired by our natural planet. My international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking in the rainforests of Far North Queensland, and the breathtaking beauty in Africa. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures. My meticulously handcrafted designs will enrich your office, home, and outdoor living spaces. Currently I am dividing my time between the Tokyo Bay Area and Hawai’i and am open for commission art works.
