Textiles, texture, and tenacity: these are a few of my favorite things. Creating works with textiles, from constructed garments to organic art pieces, has been a lifelong passion. This love led me to a fashion degree (think pattern-making). Soon after, I layered on a degree in graphic design to further enhance my creative thinking. I am quite enthusiastic about exploring various sewing and fabric manipulation techniques, combining them into something new or inventing something completely unique. I am fortunate that my work and my favorite pastime consistently keep me knee-deep in fabric! Of late, I have taken an interest in upcycling and reinventing fabrics. There are treasures to be uncovered when breathing new life into something considered ready for the bin.
