I am inspired by my environment. I love the outdoors. I recycle/upcycle fibers and textiles wherever possible. I thrive off of one of a kind, unique pieces of fashion and art. Creating is an intrinsic part of my life. The process starts with an idea and a direction but it is in fact the fabrics and colors that dictate the outcome. I am merely the hands with the technical skills that put the pieces together to create dramatic, functional wearable art.
With a love of color and texture, travel and adventure, an interest in multicultural and historical textiles, and a passion for unique fashions, I started creating my own lines of wearable art, accessories, and quilt patterns many years ago. Over the years, I have become known for the exclusive and custom corsets I create and the line of very functional yet fashionable handbags. For the winter season (or summer in Alaska), I have created a line of sweaters and hats fashioned from recycled wool knitwear and accessories recycled from men’s ties.
