About

I’ve tried many arts and crafts but always come back to photography.

Life-long creative

My first camera was a high school graduation gift: Sears KS500 (made by Ricoh).

In college, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in technical theater with a minor in art history. Passed my free time doing Seattle fringe theater in the 1990s.

I’ve explored sewing, knitting, spinning, paper craft, jewelry, mixed media art, art journals and coloring.

I am an Executive Assistant and live in the Emerald City with my supportive partner and a small army of dolls. Tenukihandcrafts was coined by my hubby. Tenuki is a term from the game of go that means to take the initiative.
