I worked as a textile designer for more then 20 years. I had my own design studio for funky printed T's for a couple of years. Then I worked for a leading company of socks and underwear for 16 years! .My work as a sock designer was great as I designed for mass, mid market and for brands like Nike,Hugo Boss, .... I traveled a lot to Europe and the USA, met some very nice people and got a lot of experience in design, styling, marketing...

2 years ago I felt I'm not as creative as I was and less happy with travelling, so I knew it was the time to make some changes in my life.I left the comfort and security of a big international company and took the time to think "What do I want to be when I'll grow up"? (at the age 50!) The answer was getting back to paint & brushes,to hand knitting and creating one of kind pieces. As friends saw my work they recommended me to start selling and then the way to Etsy was short.


In my Etsy Shop I express my love for colors in decorative objects (flowers, containers, napkin rings) I create. You'll find also fashion accessories that are based on my clay flowers. I've been selling on Etsy for about 8 months, and now I know it's going to be a long journey till I can say this is how I make my living, But it is such an interesting route, and I believe that selling online is a fantastic solution for crafters and artists to show and sell their creations.
