A self-taught artist, Liz sews, knits and macrames accessories, toys and more.
"I used to watch my mom crochet as a kid and wonder how in the world she managed to make such beautiful things with a simple hook and string. I grew up never really being able to learn from her and eventually I gave up on it. But the idea of working with my hands, creating either by writing, or drawing, building small flowers, birds and statues out of anything I could get my hands on never left me.
One day I took to the internet and taught myself how to crochet and made my first doll, a tiny panda I named Patches. After that day I spent every waking moment making, and sometimes even selling, my little crochet creations, never really following a pattern and making my own way.
I’m still not perfect, but I get better every day. I taught myself to sew, knit, and macrame. There are still many skills I want to learn and I will learn them. I can’t stop learning, it's just not who I am."
