ABOUT THE ARTIST
"Helping you on your journey to finding your own inner artist."
Rustics by TL
Hi! I’m Tracy-Lyn Habig, the Founder of Rustics by TL and fiber artist. I am from sunny San Diego, CA and current reside in Temecula with my two kids, husband, and dog. I have a background in education, working as a Clinic Director for learning disabilities and as a Head of School for an alternative 6-12th grade private school.
I first started experimenting in 2017 with macrame as a way to cope with my own anxiety. I found being a stay at home mom to be very challenging for me and needed something that was just for me. I have always loved all things creative but had never quite found my niche or the right creative outlet for myself. I had no idea what I was doing when I walked into the craft store, looking for rope. I spent hours and hours teaching myself how to do all the different types of knots and then I couldn’t stop. I love all types of fiber art and find it as such a great support for my own mental health.
