I grew up in a house full of books and handcrafted objects. My mother painted, sewed, did silversmithing, read, did needlework and was a children’s librarian. My father taught theatre and acted in and directed shows. Being around all that creativity I was bound to soak some of it up and Figments is the result.
Steampunk is a passion of mine. I grew up reading Verne and I love to figure out how things work. I got to be a part of the etsy Steamteam table at Steampowered, the first all Steampunk convention in the U.S. and have been going strong since then. I attend and sell at Steampunk conventions in the Texas and Oklahoma area these days, though I have been known to range farther afield on occasion.
I make many of my own Steampunk costume pieces, as well as props and accessories and I also find and sell wonderful pieces that someone else might find useful in their costumes and creations.
