2019 Excellence in Art to Wear

My training and specialties are in textile and apparel design, illustration, and costume history. The botanical and insect inspired collection is linoleum block printed. I design, illustrate and painstakingly hand carve each linoleum block, carving up to five blocks for an individual garment printing. Each garment section is printed before construction. My silhouettes are drawn from my historical costume studies. I translate shapes and details from the past, adding a contemporary twist.
