I am a mom to two wildly imaginative little ones and wife to a handsome Irish scientist. I am also the designer and quilter behind The Lesser Bear. I have a particular interest in traditional design, handcrafts and tools. I use a traditional craft technique to create art which celebrates the rich history of the skill and the modern aesthetic. My quilt making is currently focused on naturally dyed quilts which I hope will be cherished in the household as both a work of art and eventually as a family heirloom imbued with the owner’s own memories of use.
