Teaching since:

I'm a bright, colorful, out-of-the-box fabric artist born and residing in the Bronx. It was the funky, fly, cool styles of crocheted clothing that I saw worn by my artistic peers who inspired myself to pick up a ball of yarn and hook to make my own magic and be able to proudly say I created what I'm wearing. When I began crocheting, it was not only a wonderful creative outlet but an amazing stress reliever and mental/spiritual healing remedy.

I take my passions and share the joy through the art of teaching them to support others to find their magic, peace and creativity. I also use this healing art to create community as a student midwife.

Crocheting · In studio

Working with Sankofa I had a breakthrough around acknowledging that I had a lot of tension in me at the time (mentally especially) that I was harboring and she immediately picked up on it and would continue to gently address it every moment that I would get stuck in my creative space. That day I was exposed to therapeutic crocheting which centered the focus on, not what it was that I was creating with the yarn but my sentiment. This was a great opportunity to address what needed to be acknowledged and further, creating an opportunity to heal. I thank you for this Sankofa.
