About Elizabeth



I have been creating since I was little.  I started out in music, becoming an opera singer, but have moved through many different creative pursuits along the way: knitting, mosaics, sewing, painting, and now writing.  Sewing has been my main obsession for the last 10 years, but I have taken up painting in the last two years and recently returned to making mosaics now that my son is out of the crawling stage (ahem, he has been for quite some time).

Jack and I moved from New York City across the country to San Diego five years ago to live closer to my parents.  I left the corporate world behind and am now piecing work together teaching sewing classes to adults and children, and making mosaics.  There have been some big changes in my life in the last couple of years: I recently remarried, and am now pursuing a post graduate degree in art at UCSD.  I also help run the art program at my son’s school.  Also, I just started writing short stories on a lark using random word prompts.  Check out my short story blog here.  I have always had a dream to be a writer but never thought I could be one.  I used to think that about painting and drawing too.  Funny how those beliefs turned out false!

So with my now bigger family, my class load, and teaching responsibilities, I have little time to sew for myself.  I do try to squeeze it in when I can though.   I look forward to seeing my blog evolve as my life evolves.  I hope you will join me on my journey.

My sister says that I need to be entertained all the time.  Luckily, I know how to entertain myself now with all of my varied interests.  😉
