Through the years my styles and tastes have changed, but I still have the same fascination with creating wearable art and the need explore new ideas. I can’t express the joy it gives me every time I receive good feedback from a customer. The greatest compliment to an artist is another person’s interest and true pleasure in what she has created. Thank you for your interest in my work and please let me know if you have any questions. Linda
