I was featured in a November 2011 article with other designers in "Show Me Missouri Magazine." I created a line of hat pins and hats made from recycled ties.

Originally, I just wanted to make two hats for myself, because the hats I found in stores were always too large. I am a member of Best of Missouri Hands, where my work has achieved Juried status.

Meeting the women who ultimately wear my designs is what keeps me doing the grueling work of art fairs and shows. I see that hats make people smile and often hear endearing stories of hats belonging to aunties and grannies that inspire heartwarming memories. I see my role as that of encouraging women to wear the hats they want to wear and somehow are afraid to. I enjoy teaching the art of handmade millinery, especially at Silver Dollar City Theme Park in Branson, where I teach my art.
