Artist Statement: Crochet is one of my favorite mediums for artistic expression, where yarn and a hook become the tools through which I craft whimsical characters and imaginative worlds. With each stitch, life is given to these soft sculptures, transforming simple materials into endearing creatures. My work in Amigurumi crochet is a testament to the power of handmade artistry, as each piece has their own unique personality and charm. Through this craft, I seek a sense of wonder, joy, and nostalgia in those who encounter my creations, inviting them to embrace the magic of the handmade and the infinite possibilities of yarn.

Amigurumi is a Japanese crochet or knit technique used to create small, stuffed animals, dolls, and other cute objects, often with a distinct, whimsical style. The word "Amigurumi" is a blend of two Japanese words: "ami" (meaning knitted or crocheted) and "nuigurumi" (meaning stuffed doll). Amigurumi pieces are typically worked in the round and characterized by their adorable, oversized heads and tiny bodies, making them popular among crafters for their charm and versatility in creating soft, decorative items.
