Fabric is the canvas that I use to create my one of a kind and limited edition clothing. I love color, texture and line, combining them to create designs that can go from subtle to bold.

 

Natural fibers such as silk, cotton, linen and wool are used since they take the dye so nicely and feel great on the body. My inspiration often comes from architecture, nature and my travels.

 

The fabric is stretched onto a frame where dyes and design are applied by hand. The piece is then steamed to set the dye, washed to remove any excess and is then ready to be made into the desired garment.

  

My goal is to create clothing that flatters the body and is timeless. It is that go to piece in the closet that makes one feel good and is just fun to wear.
