"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." -Thomas Merton

   Creating is my therapy. The process, the transformation, the sense of accomplishment fulfill my soul! I love to seek out textiles that have a story before they even get into my hands. I imagine the process, the vision and the skill it took to create such beautiful pieces, and then I get to add my touch. My hope is that when you pass by your Sugar + Dirt pillow or throw in your home that it simply makes you happy. That the love it took to create that piece shines through.

   I was born and raised in the Bitterroot Valley in Montana, but dreamed of living in sunny California. In 2004 I followed my heart and moved to Southern California where I completed cosmetology school in Pasadena. After visiting the Central Coast I was sold on it's beauty and simplicity and knew that was where I wanted to be. I met the man of my dreams in 2007 and we were married two years later. We are blessed with 3 incredible children who inspire me everyday. Because of my family's belief in me and their support Sugar and Dirt Designs was born.

Since launching Sugar and Dirt Designs in November 2018, I've added more handcrafted products to my small shop. I now also offer butcher note boards and one of a kind, hipster handbags. I love creating and there is no limit to where I will take my handmade shop!
