Scraps scraps give me more scraps! Patterns and colors never clash in my mind!
My artwork has evolved from working in the upholstery business for the past 43 years.
I use all types of patterns and materials to create one of a kind purses, bags, luggage, stuffed toys, chairs of all sizes etc. My favorite material to work with is leather—all kinds of leather. I don’t throw any scrap or repurpose item away. I love challenges in making the material functional by sewing the piece to another scrap and another so the whole piece is seen as one. My favorite genre is Western Americana.
I am the owner of “Here We Go Again Upholstery” in Ft. Scott, Kansas. My husband and I have 8 children and were foster parents for 28 years. Commissions are accepted.
