Who am I.

I am starting this 30 day blog challenge with Who am I.


By day, I am a hydrologist.  By night, I am a Fiber Artist. 

I developed my passion for fish when I was a young kid.  I kept pet fish growing up.  I studied fish in school.  I have a Masters Degree in Vertebrate Paleontology.


I have crafted my entire life.  Growing up, I learned sewing, embroidery, woodworking, calligraphy, painting, drawing, silversmithing, ceramics, and fused glass.  I dabbled in quilting a couple times while I was in graduate school, but it didn't stick.  Quilting and knitting became a big part of my life in late 2009 when my daughter was 18 months old and I needed something to do that was quiet after she went to bed.  I needed something that made something tangible and long lasting, something that didn't just feel like I was killing time playing video games.  The passion grew.  I learned how to long-arm my quilts on a rental machine and I did that for five  years before we bought a house with enough space for one of my own.  In 2017, I got my long-arm and haven't looked back.
