Delicate hand embroidered single art pieces can be made into wall hangings or framed. These can also be displayed as furniture coverings.

Original design–each piece is hand made and embroidered, no two are alike, I don’t use patterns. Most are padded, with backing material and margins of complementary color. My signature and  date are embedded in the embroidery.

Gentleness is required in handling these bags and pouches.  Never put these in the washer or attempt to wash by hand. Only if needed, hand wipe with very soft cloth and a minimal amount of water. Please do not use soap or cleansers on them.

Commissions are accepted. Pieces can be custom made, you decide the size and we can confer on the colors of material and thread, however the material itself and design are at my discretion. Writing can be included, calligraphy and Arabic writing can be included. Also available: table runners, place mats, napkins. Prices vary.

Legacy is embedded in these embroidered creations, a gift from my ancestral grandmothers and mother; I grew up watching them embroider. I always admired similar work by the indigenous women of Mexico. This inheritance and my use of color and design has resulted in what you hold in your hand.
