Get to Know

Gustys has been offering my handcrafted bow ties, fabric arts, and original poetry online since 1998. Browse through the innovatively-designed offerings of Gustys studio, including my original poetry chapbooks and bookmarks. I'm sometimes asked, "Why is your studio called Gustys?" The name comes from two sources: in memory of a beloved Pomeranian dog, and my teaching for 25 years as a Ph.D. Lecturer at a major university (long-winded professors = hot air!). You can reach me through "contact Artisan" in my studio page, or by email:
