Though my background is in fine art, I have always had a love for textiles. There is definitely a symbiosis that occurs between the two. Either I'm adding fabric or other found materials to my paintings, or manipulating fabric through dyeing techniques and patchwork. My one-woman show over the past several years has been about reconciling the two in a way that inspires both me and my customer. When I think of making clothing, I envision easy to wear, comfortable shapes as foundation for random, creative experiments. I set out to inspire you, and as it turns out, you have also inspired me. It's been so much fun getting to know so many of you. Much thanks and love.
