"Her journey to the use of crochet as an art medium was a long one, starting in an after-school-program in Poland where she took the book home and pushed herself to learn it. Then she forgot about crochet until she was 16 and cut her hair short, when she realized she could crochet a hat to cover it in the cold, and friends asked her to make a few things as well.
"Once again though, the crochet hook was put down, until she arrived in the U.S. and was asked to make a costume for a dance rehearsal. She could not afford a sewing machine, but remembered her crochet abilities and designed a costume by crocheting. The final event was attending a sculpture class where the professor challenged her to make a sculpture out of the material, and from that time on, it has become the medium for her artistic creations."
