About

How I got to where I am...

I am originally from Michigan and moved to New Orleans 11 years ago. I worked at a Magazine Street boutique for a number of years and was inspired by coworkers and local artist friends to start making things from recycled materials. I taught myself to sew and almost immediately began selling my wears at the boutique and also at local art markets. I've been able to grow my business into a full time job and have expanded into my own sewing studio in the Lower Garden District. I love to recycle things and I love to sew. I feel pretty lucky to be able to support myself doing what I love.

    I'm a self taught seamstress/ designer. I love what I do and try to put this love in everything I make. I use mostly recycled fabrics and enjoy making something less desirable into something beautiful. When I'm not sewing I'm enjoying New Orleans.
