I’m an artist, mother, fabric designer, knitter, seamstress, engineer, visual merchandiser, gardener, fabric junky, color collector and pattern/texture crazy!

It's this eclectic mix of interests and skills that weave together my unique one-of-kind creations. In 2012, I introduced Luckey ReDo, a line of whimsical, re-imagined and refashioned wearables. Working from a collection of carefully curated recycled garments, I transform everyday wardrobe pieces into creative works of functional, wearable art, combining traditional craft techniques—knitting, felting, sewing, embroidery and collage.

My line of hand-knit originals includes hats, fingerless gloves, mittens, scarves, shawls and decorative collars. For these, I work primarily with a Japanese, hand-dyed wool-silk-angora blended yarn, but also incorporate angora, mohair and cashmere. Each artisanal piece enjoys unique embellishments: antique buttons & lace, accents of pattern, bursts of color, repurposed fabrics, hand-knit tendrils. I continue to explore the boundaries of my knitting with soft textured holes, mixed fibers, colors & function.

The wearability and practical function of these distinct collections combined with their luxurious textures, unexpected colors and imaginative designs creates an air of levity that is a signature of my work.

My career began with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and has included work in the textile corporate industry as head designer for technical outdoor markets, a designer of home textiles in the world market, interior designer, and as an independent and innovative entrepreneur and artist who supports her community through the arts.
