Eight years ago I quit my day job as a graphic designer, headed home and relaxed for a few months. There is only so much cleaning and painting one can do before it is finished and time to walk away from it. One day in August of 2006 I started working with silk and other fabrics. I had no idea I would be starting a business making patchwork skirts and silk garments when I quit my job.
My favorite work is composing cotton patchwork garments. I just love them. All cloth is carefully handpicked and placed within the garment for the most stunning and visually eye-catching feeling. Some of the more elaborate garments have up to 224 pieces while others can have up to 56 or so pieces. Patchwork pants which I don't sell too often have about 336 pieces.
Color and design is an important part of all of my work as well as how it moves about…
