Artist by calling, art historian by training, completely obsessed with yarn. The colors, the textures, the infinite possibilities within each skein I love knitting cables. I love knitting lace. Cables combined with lace are my idea of a knitting nirvana. I have been designing knits ever since I first picked up the needles about ten years ago; my first swatch was a sweater for my baby boy. Since then, my designs have appeared in numerous publications, such as Interweave Knits, Jane Austen Knits, Twist Collective, and Knitty. All of my designs and projects can be found at www.ArtQualia.com.I am a little bit of a nomad; originally from Europe, Ive lived in five US states and two European countries. Ive studied fashion design and I have an extensive background in studio arts and art history. All these travels and studies, along with my love of nature, continue to inspire my knitting.
