I was an art major in college (MA in watercolor painting) but it's my raffia hats for which I am known. I sold them at the California Renaissance Pleasure Faire from the mid-70s through the mid-90s. I still attend the faire periodically, usually for only one weekend each of both the northern and southern faire. But you can buy my hats online year round. Please visit my website for examples of the full range of wearable art and other items I make.
Note: I can make needlelace veils by request for hats you already own. Contact me for details. I can also accommodate other special orders. Visit my website for examples.
