About

Free Flying in a World of Art, Culture and Love

I am blessed to come from a very talented family with a long line of artists and designers. I knew since I was a very young child that I someday would be following in the footsteps of my Mother, a sample maker for a Boston fashion designer, and my Grandmother Rosina, who presented to the Vatican in Rome, Italy the Christening gown she handmade for the baby Jesus. Both women have since passed on but will always be a huge inspiration for me.

It was at Massachusetts College of Art and Design where I received my formal training and was recognized for my talents. I was the recipient of numerous awards of distinction such as; the Massachusetts College of Art and Design Award for Excellence in Design, the Lord & Taylor Dress Design Competition Scholarship Award, and an internship with Leslie Fay in New York City.

It was in 1991 when I made my professional debut at The Boston Designers Collaborative Press Expo Fashion Show, showcasing my collection which ranged from swimwear and sportswear, to evening wear and wedding gowns. Boston's leading fashion designer and BDC founder, Geoffrey B. Small reviewed my collection: "very hip...very original, slick and elegant....tutto Perfetto!" and he compared my work to the likes of Romeo Gigli, Blass, and Moschino.

My passion for leather emerged from my passion for riding when I accomplished a life long dream and got my motorcycle endorsement in 2004. I wanted something to wear to motorcycle events and rallies so I purchased a leather hide or two, designed a few pieces and wore them never anticipating the attention I would receive. Both women and men would stop me in my tracks to ask where I purchased what I was wearing. And that's where the idea for Sexy Skins Leather was born. I saw a need for sensual leather clothing that was also sophisticated and classy and not the typical biker chick stuff you would see hanging on the racks. I began designing leather apparel and accessories geared toward women in the biker world.

Soon after the birth of Sexy Skins, I encountered one life altering experience after another which sent me on a private journey where a deeper spiritual awakening and a total reinvention of self and soul took place. This was a pivotal time in my life as a person and an artist because I gave my soul permission to explore. This freedom brought to the surface a buried childhood memory of a curiosity I had for the continent of Africa. With that same childlike curiosity, I began to study Africa's culture eventually focusing on the Nuer tribe after befriending one of its members. This has had an enormous affect in my life and my art; the creation of my latest pieces are the result of my personal journey coupled with my exploration into a culture which I am now passionate about.

Some of my custom work can be seen on stage, television, and on the big screen on clients such as; Magic Dick from the legendary J. Geils Band, celebrity motorcycle and exotic car builder, Alan Lee, and most recently a leather accessory piece I designed and crafted for Pharrell Williams. When I first began my Sexy Skins journey, I would have felt this to be a great accomplishment and in a way it is. However, what I value today is different and my dreams are bigger - they go beyond what I can imagine and are always guided by the light - the "who" is wearing my designs means little compared to personally connecting to the many who wear my creations.

I hope you stay tune to see how the story unravels as I, and my art, continue to blossom.

Peace Out (for now).

Delivery time varies upon project and your location. Please contact me for a measurement chart, and more information.
