My Story

I always made things. In elementary school my artwork was hung in school hallways, city hall, etc. 

In high school, for money, I sewed and sewed and sewed; purses, blazers, commissioned work, etc, my customers were students and teachers.  I was the artist, maker, creator that everyone came to if  something was needed made, drawn, or built.

As a young adult, the analytical side of my brain took over.  I went to university for a BS in Computer Science which I funded by working full time as a metal machinist.

For me writing software is a craft; part art and part skill. Designing software blends creative and engineering skills. Nevertheless I never stopped creating artwork for myself and anyone that asked.

After years of working as a Software Engineer in the USA, UK, and Europe, it happened to me, I was laid-off. Oh my!

Life continued. It was the holidays and I spent it with my family. One of my brothers suggest I teach his twin sons to sew, like I taught him. We found an old blanket and made creatures. It was so much fun, I went home and continued creating original creatures as it's a CYN.


Merging bygone and new techniques, it's a CYN, uses reclaimed, rescued, and up-cycled materials to skillfully create  handcrafted characters. Each sculpture is planned, designed, and drawn from it's a CYN’s, unique patterns and 3d models. These one of a kind creations are an assemblage of textures and colors with embellishments that include found, timeless, and personally 3d printed features. The 3d printed elements are made from PLA, a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable and plant resources. 

it's a CYN, believes there is beauty in nonsense, with her desirable creations that awaken emotions, while evoking a sense of whimsy.
