I am trained as a graphic designer and photographer and spent 11 years working in the industry before ‘quitting my day job’ in 2008 to pursue my own graphic design business and start my jewelry shop, lillyella metal works.
After recently scaling back my larger design clients, I now focus on working with other artists and small businesses. This allowed me the opportunity to pursue my love of sewing and launch lillyella stitchery where you will find unique and original sewing patterns, as well as a few handmade soft goods.
I was born and raised in Ohio and moved away in 2010 when my husband rejoined the Army. After a couple years in the south for training, we were sent to Colorado where we bought a small farm and plan to live out our golden years.
In addition to working with metal, fabric and dirt, I love cross stitch, canning, old trucks, small farm animals, big dogs, the color yellow, vintage pyrex and all things related to cooking, baking and eating.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
