About the Artist
I was born in Kyrgyzstan. Sheep was our main source of food and our art. I grew up making hats and scarves with my family. When I moved to USA 12 years ago I wanted to carry out my family tradition by making hats and scarves here in the US. My partner and husband Jon Ortgiesen and I have been attending Art Shows for the past 9 years.
My husband is a Landscape Architectc/Artistfrom the Del Mar,CA area. We now live in Gig Harbor, Wa.
