I aspire to make garments that are dreamlike, ultra-feminine and have subtle but powerful sex appeal. I want my peices to be cherished "forever-favorites" in your wardrobe.

INSPIRATIONS: Roberto Cavalli, Alice Temperly, Yves St. Laurent, Valentino, Patrick Kelly. And I LOVE the luxurious style of French Rococo!

PAINTINGS
Along with fashion, painting is my great love. I have been an oil painter for over 20 years and almost always do portraits, choosing subjects who fit into an idea I am pondering. I get the most pleasure when painting clothing, hair and jewelry.

FAVORITE ARTISTS: Antonello da Messina, Bottecelli, Elizabeth Peyton, Egon Sheile, David, Vermeer and Caravaggio.
