DragynKnyts Fiber and Dyeworks came to be at the intersection of my fibery creations taking over my home and my life, and getting the tattoo on my right calf of a Celtic style dragon, perched atop a ball of yarn, knitting away happily on a scarf. The dragon (I call him Symon) is a representation of me at my core, in my heart. Friendly, loyal, loving, but armed with sharp talons and capable of breathing fire if necessary. Where the calm meets the fire is where creativity lies, where passion is created.

I love to find a beautiful spot in nature and soak in the view, the sounds and scents. Gaia graciously provides me with many natural, sacred spaces. I especially love being near just about any body of water. The water speaks to me, and it’s just so peaceful. It’s a great way to recharge my batteries. Nature is one of my biggest creative inspiration sources. I'm often found with my camera, or sketchpad, or both, trying to capture a moment of inspiration.

When I’m not dyeing, weaving, knitting, designing, and otherwise creating beautiful fibery products, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and pets; sitting by waterfalls, cooking, reading, and writing.

My husband and I have been married 25 years and have four children, ranging from 11th grade to college grads, who also help with the running of things around here. We have two, four-legged furry friends. We currently live in Eugene, OR, where I do all my dyeing.

I mainly hand dye/paint yarns and fibers these days. I dye yarns and combed top in several bases each, as well as locks, silk hankies and fleeces. I also make hand carded batts, gradient batts, and art batts for hand spinners and felters.

That’s a lot about me, and I’m hoping along the way I meet and learn a little about you.  There’s no such thing as too many friends! For the most current and up to date information, and to keep informed of events you might find me at, follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

And though I came to forget or regret all I have ever done, yet would I remember that once I saw the dragons aloft on the wind at sunset above the western isles; and I would be content.
