2018 Excellence in Art to Wear

I seek to drape the body with the same beauty and grace of the traditional Indian silks I love. I work almost exclusively with recycled saris; each five meters of silk has had one life already in India. To me, they carry a story and as I work with each piece I imagine the woman who wore it and the woman who will wear it in its new form; where it will take her and how she will feel. I sculpt garments - building rather than sewing - and I strive to create finely finished pieces.
