Originally from France, I have been living abroad for as long as I can remember, with one brief parenthèse of Parisian life during my college years. After almost 12 years in the US, I am now living in Northern Germany with my husband and 2 kids.

I published my first pattern in 2008, and have been designing ever since, with a particular love for children’s knits that are timeless yet whimsical.
