I was born into a German family that lived in the South of Spain. All of my life I've been surrounded by creativity, music and making art. I moved to Germany at 18 and got a degree in Music Therapy.

I married the love of my life at age 30 (after not seeing each other for 10 years!) and together we have 4 small children, that we decided to have within less than 5 years. We genuinely thought this was a good idea.... Now that our youngest is 2 and a half we finally feel like we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. :)

During our 10 years of marriage we have lived on three different continents, beginning in Madrid, Spain spending a year and a half in Taiwan, Syracuse NY, Athens, GA and finally ending up in Newberg, a small town in Oregon that we immediately fell in love with.

Sudie's Corner was born a couple of years ago when I decided to find an alternative to battery operated toys and return to a more simple way of imaginative play. What started as a birthday gift for my then 4 year old, quickly turned into a hobby and a new passion. My skills and scope have developed and grown so much since then and are continuously evolving. It's amazing for me to compare my beginnings with what I am creating now.

I am passionate about the possibilities that a simple wooden form like a peg doll can be made into. I love working closely with you creating the perfect keepsake that you will love and treasure for years to come. Thank you for coming in and looking at my work.
