Meet the Maker

Hello and welcome to my shop. I’m glad you stopped by. My name is Dawn and I have been creating in one form or another for more than 40 years.

When I was a young girl, maybe 10 years old, my grandma tried to teach me how to knit and crochet. Let's just say it didn't work out quite the way we would have liked. When I was a bit older and out on my own I decided to try my hand at quilting. It had to be easier, probably because it didn't matter that I was left-handed...unlike knitting and crocheting.

Today I specialize in artisan Christmas ornaments and contemporary, handcrafted art that is inspired by nature. I grew up in the heart of the Adirondacks in New York state, spent a few years in Hawaii, and now live on 14 acres of woods in the middle of nowhere.

How it’s Made

All my art is made with 100% cotton batiks. Why batiks? Every piece of batik fabric is a work of art itself. I love the freedom this gives me when creating. Batiks are created by first applying wax to portions of a piece of fabric. The fabric is then dyed and the wax removed. Most of the batiks I use are created on the island of Bali where they cure the dyed fabric in the tropical sunshine. Using these fabrics is like taking a tropical vacation without leaving home.

I start each project by deciding my basic color scheme. I start pulling out fabric; always more than I will need. Chances are about 100% that the final piece will contain at least a few fabrics that were not in the original lineup. The artwork takes on a life of its own as I progress and the final piece of art is always a surprise.

I currently create all my artwork using a 1941 Singer 201-2 blackside sewing machine in a lovely mahogany table that was my birthday gift to me in 2023. I had the honor of rescuing and restoring it after it spent many years in a storage shed in Maine. Unlike the standard Singer sewing machine, many of the normally bright plated parts on my machine utilized a chemically blacked finish instead. This is thought to have been in response to shortages of nickel and chromium due to World War II.
