Original textile patterns and handmade apparel and home decor

I am an artist and designer based in the prairies of Calgary, Alberta. Growing up in a small town in British Columbia’s interior nurtured my love of nature and creativity. Today I focus on fine art and textiles after completing a Bachelor of Fine Art with distinction majoring in Fibre earned from the Alberta College of Art + Design. There I relished in learning silkscreen pattern printing and silk painting and dyeing.

The textile patterns I create are rich with hand drawn design and painterly techniques, drawing imagery from our environment, architecture and history. I create one of a kind textiles using thoughtful technique. All silk pieces are painted by hand, each piece is individual. I also create all my own stencils for silk screening and print. Each piece is locally made, and I believe that there is a comfort to wearing clothing that is not mass produced. My hope is for the wearer to feel that they are adorning themselves with a thoughtful and luxurious garment and that my textiles will bring joie de vivre to the life of their owners.
Each collection is concept based and I have most currently been exploring themes of personal history and an individual's perception of their environment.
