About

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you have imagined!

About 5 years ago I rediscovered my love of sewing while making a remnant quilt to clear out clutter. Suddenly I was hooked. I started making pouches and bags since I am an avid handbag hoarder. In 2012 I quit my day job and began traveling around America with my art supplies packed into my car. I was unpacking my sewing machine and supplies to fulfill orders in hotels and hostels. Occasionally I stayed in a city for a few months but always got the bug to travel again, growing my business along the way. I feel so lucky to be able to utilize my creativity every day while feeding my adventurous spirit. During the summer of 2015 I settled down in sunny Los Angeles, California.

I can usually be found at my sewing machine, outside with a vat of dye and piles of fabric, working with jewelry or laying around with pens and paper. My shop has a little bit of everything that I am passionate about.

My work can be found in shops and galleries across America. Visit the Valentine Museum in Richmond, Va or Art Collector Shop in Berkley, Ca to see my bags in person.
