I’ve always had a fondness for color and a weakness for design. It was only natural that, even as a child, I became enamored with all things handmade. Commercially produced clothing and accessories never appealed to my sensibilities. Instead, I sought unique and inventive ways to express my individuality. One of the very first custom creations I made was a bright and vivid patchwork quilt that I made from several pairs of colorful vintage-era blue jeans. The effect was charming, whimsical and aroused my passion for sewing. I received so many compliments on that quilt that I set my sights on more intricate projects.
It wasn’t long before I was sewing my own custom made clothing from upcycled and new fabrics. To me, there has always been something so magical about taking different fabrics and transforming them into a cohesive design. There is nothing I love more than sewing unique clothing…
