Growing up, my three sisters and I had to learn two things – how to sew and how to play the piano.  The sewing part stuck with me but I’m still not much of a musician.  I love working with fabric, love to watch it take shape and take on a personality.  By day, I work in the corporate world as an IT analyst where things are basically black and white but at night, YellowViolet allows me to create things and work with beautiful colors and textures.  It keeps me (somewhat) balanced.

My goal is to provide something for everyone and have fun while doing it.  I find I create according to my mood…sometimes elegant things, sometimes funky things and other times things that have a soft, soothing presence.  Each piece has a little of me reflected in it and my hope is that it brings a smile to someone’s face.

There are times when I am working that I feel as if the inspiration is not coming from me but coming through me.  That feeling of being in the flow is what I aspire to.  Being happy or surprised or totally blown away by the finished product is just so satisfying.  Having other people appreciate it, too, is priceless.

We love hearing from our community!
