About

ME: A creative soul eager to learn appreciate every detail of life. Have been expressing myself through my own designs since age 16. Started with altering my brothers t-shirts and a stapler. Quickly taught myself how to use a sewing machine. My mind is constantly re-designing most of the world, cafe's, retail boutiques, office buildings, other people's homes, as well as clothes. It is a non-stop space conscious creative machine.

FEELING: Incorporating the many moods and emotions of being a human in this world, combining sex, comfort, original art, and other elements to create fashion. I started off making clothes for myself so a lot of each design is inspired by a time or moment in life that needed more expression. Fashion is repeated throughout history, this is what makes it so beautiful. How we alter it, is what makes each design our own…

JEWELRY: Lately I have found myself on a jewelry making binge. I use various materials, metals, gun metal, sterling silver, gold, vintage chains, natural stones, crystal, glass beads, wood, leather, etc. When creating I envision a purpose, an emotion and of course the customer. Try to let my imagination wander.

APPAREL: The Fabric used is either left over fabric or vintage fabric. Left over fabric meaning it was bought from a store called Affordable Fabrics, which sells the scraps and unsold material from the fabric district. So instead of buying new I choose to use what has just been left over. Vintage fabric meaning recycling the fabric from vintage garments, transforming them into a new design. Most of the vintage pieces found at thrift stores.
