We love sharing stories that matter. What's yours?
I have created with my hands for as long as I can remember. I also have a passion for interior design and
for all things miniature. As my life path weaves along I bring these interests
together by creating rooms in miniature.
I am a self-taught artist, both in my former career in interior design amd now in my textile art. Dependent on a machine's process, drawing a scene must be created sequentially, even though what comes from my pen is not in that order. Once I am happy with a drawing, I can begin to stitch it out on an embroidery machine.
My pieces are created layer by layer. By repurposing interior design
memo samples and used fabrics, I create a composition. The details build slowly
as I assemble, choose and place each successive piece of fabric. I have a keen
eye for detail, and take special care to drape the fold of a curtain or to
stuff a cushion.
I am influenced by the paintings of Vanessa Grant and Duncan Bell. Kit
Kemp’s use of crafts in her interiors delights me. I create rooms that I can
feel a part of. My hope is that the
viewer will also want to inhabit these spaces.
My daughter-in-law was very pleased and touched with the pillow of her beloved
pet, Moose. My son also confirmed that it meant alot to her. The care and effort and artistry is very much appreciated and is being enjoyed and is a sweet reminder of their beloved pet.
Sarah made the most beautiful pillow for Walter. It is of his beloved dog, Grady. I trusted Sarah to make the fabric selection and love the finished product. The priority was Grady's expression, and she NAILED it!! The pillow is placed in a well trafficked area and is a constant reminder of an amazing and loyal companion. Watching Walter open his gift was very moving. Thank you, Sarah, for a beautiful piece of art which we will always treasure!
What I love most about these pieces is they are not posed portraits. They are spontaneous moments that capture special memories. Thank you for capturing the memories and my precious grandchildren. Your artistic interpretation is great.
Thanks, Sarah… amazing how some people look in stitching exactly as they do in real life…excited and thanks!

Seeing them made me so emotional. They are so so beautiful that I was overwhelmed with emotion. You captured each boys personality with the fabric choices and the Cardinal and note on the back threw me over the edge. My brother in law looks like an angel!!
I can’t thank you enough for your work and the passion you put into it. It’s a true art form.
I received the package and it is more beautiful in person! The veil turned out perfectly.Thank you so much!
Wow- it's perfect- brings tears to my eyes! Going to give to my dad for Father's Day (the home he grew up in/my grandparents home, Edenton NC)
Amazing!!!! This is incredible!!!!! I am so excited!! The kids look very much in their likeness.
