Hi, I’m Carlie.

I’ve always had a passion for art and love exploring different media. After graduating from music school, I began teaching dance and music classes. In my spare time, I painted murals and delved into the world of fiber arts. Over time, I grew to love the freedom and independence that working as an artist allowed me, and took the plunge into working full time on my own. When I discovered Etsy, I knew that it was the perfect place to focus my skills. It’s the ideal outlet for my creativity and expression as an artist and I’m so thankful for this opportunity.

_DSC0082I love using vintage items as inspiration and reinventing them with a modern twist. I’m always working on new designs with custom colors, new rich textures and new techniques. My customers keep me pushing the creative boundaries with their inspirations and ideas. I love creating custom, one of a kind pieces that have become family heirlooms. It’s been a whirlwind of painting, sewing, crochet filled days (and nights), and I have loved every bit of it. I finally feel like I’ve found my place in the world.

In addition to crocheting, I’m the mother of two awesome kids, musician, muralist, photographer, and dance teacher. I absolutely love anything artistic, and am hardly ever still.  Most days, you’ll find me covered in paint, sorting through yarn scraps, building scenery, teaching a music lesson, or working out some choreography.  I’m inspired by the beauty of the world around me, romantic music,  graceful lines, and anything that makes my kids light up with laughter.  In my “spare time”  I also enjoy playing roller derby.

DSCN8469I am very fortunate, and blessed beyond measure with an amazingly supportive family that motivates and inspires me each day.

I hope you enjoy my work. If you have a request for something you don’t see listed, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to see what I can do.
