As a creator of wearable art, my designs are an extension of my hopes, dreams, and fears. My craft and my spirit are curled together in my character. I am primarily influenced by the past, while acknowledging the present and imagining the future. I am inspired by almost anything that I see, hear, touch, or feel more than once. In my process, I usually start with a design sketch and then bring it to life with my hands, design tools, and machines. I enjoy working with wool, silk, blends and knits. My designs are strong, yet feminine. And I believe, that my creations, when worn, enhances these traits in the woman, creating a symbiotic relationship between the owner and her clothing. With each collection that I develop, I seek to innovate apparel design while dressing the women of today.
