Hey! I'm Rebecca!
When I was a kit, I had an ever-changing and very long list of what I wanted to be when I grew up. President, astronaut, and micro biologist all had their turn, but artist was always near the top. My childhood was filled with art classes and design books, oil pastels and water color. Despite years of technical training, I could never get my hands to create the beautiful images I saw in my head.
I was so frustrated!
I had all this creative energy inside of me and no medium to realize my visions.
Then I discovered kumihimo. Finally, my hands coorporated and my design ideas became a reality! What a joy to use my lifetime of design training to create beautiful, wearable art.
