In my own little corner of this vast world, I sit and knit. Then I wash it and it shrinks into something else. Every bag is unique because wool shrinks to it own desire. This give me more freedom to make one of a kind items. My embellishments on the bags comes from things that move me. I have enjoyed making every bag, and sometimes it is hard to sell them.

creative.hodge.podgeI work a lot with mixed media and enjoy collaging, collecting, drawing, and painting. I try to use common materials such as cardboard, highlighters, pen, whiteout, tape, maps, diagrams, buttons, paper scraps, interesting pages from used books, and books themselves.
