About Me

About The Artist 

I live in a quiet, forested suburb outside of New York City with my husband and three teenagers.  My unique designs originate from a lifetime of portrait painting, being an equestrian, a baker, and a violinist.  

How It Began

I bring 30 years of canvas painting along with 40 years of stitching to these designs.  

As a teen, a disabled parent noticed a decline in her hands and it was apparent that my art skills could help.  On the back of a Dimensions crewel canvas (a manufactured brand in chain craft stores in the 1980s) I repainted the scene larger.  As her disability progressed, I bought larger mesh blank canvas to keep her stitching.

A Business Is Born

In 2019, I published several needlepoint designs.  In 2022, a line of over 100 designs outgrew the studio.  Today, the line is distributed to local needlepoint retailers throughout the US with The Collection Designs.  I proudly offer my designs exclusively through retailers.

I’d love to see your stitched Froopy Designs canvas on Instagram using my tag @FroopyDesignsLLC.

All original designs are copyright protected.  I believe true enjoyment of stitching comes from a community of skilled artists and the needlepoint retailers that house invaluable knowledge, fibers, and spaces to gather.
