Lilac Hill Designs creates beautiful and useful things for gardeners and non-gardeners alike. I have been a graphic designer and creative for more than thirty years. I learned how to sew when I was about 10 years old and have always had an interest in creating new things by hand. I am now channeling much of my creative spirit into the products of Lilac Hill Designs.

My first products were driven by my love for the garden, which continues to be a source of inspiration for many of my products. I am especially proud of my unique cross-body garden bag which I developed after repeatedly losing garden tools around my yard. I knew that having something that attached to me, in a non-invasive way, would be the answer. Much sketching, several prototypes later and the current Cross-Body Garden Bag was created and has become a must-have and well-loved product by many gardeners.

I seem to have more ideas than I have time, but I will continue to bring new products online as they are developed.
