About Us

Becoming Art was born in 2009, although I've been selling my goods for much longer.    Hand dying and crafting has been a part of my life since childhood.  Selling my goods to others started at 15.  With a basket full of macrome, crocheted hats, and hand dyed silks I took my bounty to fairs and traded for other goods or enough money to keep crafting.

My introduction to dyeing yarn and spinning fibers was a natural progression based on my love for color and texture.  Becoming Art is run by myself and my husband with the occasional helper.  We run an in-home office and separate studio yurt for our dye space.  Every piece is dyed, twisted, tagged or braided by us.  While it may take us a tad longer to make a finished item, we believe that our eye for detail and quality control is evident in the final product. 

Being part of fiber arts community has become the ideal job as I work from home while loving up my 6 beautiful sons and husband of 21 years.  I live in the Great Northwest where I enjoy watching the seasons make their striking changes 4 times a year.   We spend our non-working hours enjoying the outdoors, traveling and building a small homestead on our rural property.
