About the Artist

“I am a nurse by education and profession, receiving my masters in nursing from the University of Delaware. I currently teach in the clinical component of the RN program at Harrisburg Area Community College.

My business, Off the Hook, started in 2003, and has taken interesting turns to the point it currently is. I enjoy making one-of-a-kind purses, and different styles of ponchos. The Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) and its annual conferences which I attend yearly, has added knowledge and depth to what I do. I am the co-founder of the Harrisburg area chapter of the CGOA, Those(Y)arnCrocheters. I am currently the Treasurer of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, and am an active, juried member of the Yellow Breeches Chapter of the PGC.”
