My journey into soap making started when I was just 14 years old. I grew up on a small farm where we raised our own animals for fiber and had a robust vegetable garden. From a young age I was creating: knitting, spinning yarn, making art. Soap making was something that always intrigued me as a young girl so I tried my hand at it and have been running with it ever since.
Over the years I have gone to art school then setting on a career in Librarianship. One constant in my life has been my desire to make beautiful soaps and body products out of all natural ingredients. I love playing with color and texture. Nothing makes me happier than when someone tells me "they had no idea soap could look like this!"
