About

I've always loved the creative arts. Touching them, creating my own pieces and mixing materials and textures. I've valued beautiful things that could be created and found and joined together to make something unique for myself and for others. I LOVE to create. As a young girl, I started by making clothes for my Snoopy collection. Today, I put my hand to everything from housewares and furnishings to personal accessories.

For me, organic forms are always best, because they pay homage to nature, and to the beauty in the paths that are created there.

I know you'll enjoy Mayme Maxi creations. Mayme was my great-grandmother; one of the flyest women to walk this earth. Her brother, Leroy, played in Cab Calloway's band. Mayme liked to take me to the inimitable Neiman Marcus, saying, "pick out something nice." She was a bad chick! lol...ENJOY!
