Visual Art – Kansas City

I am a self taught embroidery artist, living in Kansas City, Missouri. By day, I work as a Medical Case Manager at a community health clinic. Through my work teaching health literacy to families living with chronic illnesses, I find inspiration for my anatomical designs. I am completely engrossed in the indie stitching culture. I stitch daily, rarely traveling without a hoop and needle. I see the world through a lens of various stitches. I take every opportunity possible to share my love of embroidery, to teach the skill to others, and to put a fresh twist on an ancient but lively art form.
