THE ORNAMENT MAGAZINE PRIZE FOR EXCELLENCE IN ART TO WEAR
My training and specialties are in textile and apparel design, illustration, and costume history. This botanical and insect inspired collection is linoleum block printed. I design, illustrate and painstakingly hand-carve each linoleum block. Each garment section is printed before construction. I layer prints and colors to get the desired effect, carefully considering all the garment design details before printing. I translate shapes and details from the past, adding a contemporary twist. I strive to create a unique, wearable, and beautifully constructed garment with timeless design, historical references, and impeccable craftsmanship.
