Better known under her distinctive nickname CymberRain. she was born in Illinois but was bit with the travel bug at an early age. she wandered all over the united states and settled in seattle for over a decade. she used to be the owner and operator of the Seattle reweaving company Sallymender, which was a 75 year old company practicing the almost lost art of invisible mending. For many years she saved her customers clothes and precious keepsakes from the ravages of moths and other tragedies.
She then wandered over to France and started creating her art once again. In her first years in France she concentrated on intricate embroidered works often taking weeks and even months to complete. Since then she has went on to explore the worlds of dyeing, wire wrapping and many other mediums.
