Biography


For Mary, life began in La Crosse, Wisconsin, a beautiful small city situated on the Mississippi River.  Over the years, Maryís life adventures took her to Texas, Colorado, Northern California, back to Colorado and then on to Missouri, where she happily resides on forested acreage with her husband and Pomeranians.  Her first creative outlet was to teach herself to crochet.  Quickly tiring of making scarves and blankets, she taught herself to knit.  Creating sweaters gave her the artistic outlet she craved and she has become a master knitter who can design a sweater while actually knitting it.
