Nora is an artist on a mission. Armed with a sewing machine, some knitting needles, and a few go-to dance moves, she teaches groups of kids how to express themselves through making and art. She lives in Millvale, PA, (just across the river from Pittsburgh) with her best friends and her two cats. Her room/studio/life is a loosely organized conglomerate of shoeboxes labeled “fabric scraps” and “trim/pompoms”. Kids call her Ms. Nora, the cats call her slave.
