Under my mother's guidance, I began to sew as a child and spent countless happy hours by her side, learning and making. I've spent a lifetime engaged with this art form (over 50 years!) and am grateful to her for those early fundamental lessons.
Design, color and small hand-stitching shape my work with animals and dolls. An avid quilter for many years, I'm currently on hiatus from patterned cottons and find myself 'knee-deep' in the pleasures of pure wool felt.
From my home studio in Belfast, Maine, I design, create and market my work as Oliver Rabbit. Here I tell stories, play with the personality of handmade, teach others to sew and develop patterns so you, too, can enjoy the magic of making something!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your visit!
