Like me on FACEBOOK for latest updates and sales informations.I also publish new pictures of my upholstery work and pictures of my work shop are coming soon!

I have been an avid designer and artist for over 20 years.

Now I live in Canada with my two children, Noah and Isabella, in a lovely little town close to Ottawa and I came back to my roots as a designer and a dress maker and started a successful business from my home.
I do custom sewing, home decor, alterations and upholstery.

I love working with natural materials, creating unique designs, patterns, salvaging old pieces of furniture and giving them a new chance at life. Most of my work is inspired by my love of theatre, traveling and my children and reflects a lot of my personality and lifestyle.
♥ I love music, art, books and nature ♥
When I have a chance to create something new, it's my way of relaxing...
