About

British Milliner, Designer, living and working in Venice, CA.

For many years I had my own bricks and mortar hat shop, Browns, opposite the LA Louver art gallery in Venice, California. When we came to LA from London in 1975 my husband and I bought a 1920s warehouse building in Venice where we raised our family while working on hats, antique furniture and art. Soon I was designing and making hats for other stores in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. This was at the beginning of a very creative time in Venice and it was exciting to be part of it.
I have always liked to experiment in different mediums which is how I became a milliner. I often admired the stylish hats I saw in shop windows in London but I never imagined I'd start my own hat business. Before we came to California I was an art teacher and practicing artist in West London. I had taken sculpture as part of my Fine Art course at college and found that experience of working in 3D very helpful in designing hats.
In 2010 I joined Ten Women Gallery, an artists coop, on Abbott Kinney Blvd in Venice. Later we moved to Montana Ave in Santa Monica, an attractive street with boutiques and coffee shops and families walking their strollers and dogs. I enjoy meeting patrons and seeing Montana Ave shoppers wearing my hats.
