Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I’ve been surrounded by luscious greens and earthy hues my entire life.

For over 12 years, I spent my time creating at a computer. My background in graphic/web design and other mediums has been fun & eclectic, but I wanted to step away from my desk and become more hands-on once again.

And so… a few years back, while completely mesmerized with Bravo TV’s marathon of Project Runway, new inspiration came my way. I grabbed my keys and headed out to the local Fred Meyer (the only place open at 10:30pm.)  I bought my first machine then and there, and stayed up all night cutting, sewing, and creating  …without knowing it, the idea of Moss Bags was born.
