Spooky and Beautiful

I have always been obsessed with found objects. I have been collecting bones and artifacts for most of my life. I am an animal lover, vegetarian, and an animal advocate. I ensure all my materials are sourced ethically. I am constantly sourcing and working with new materials to create the perfect blend of spooky and beautiful. This is my mission.

I have been fortunate enough to do specialty costume design for a movie and production design for horror short. My work is also featured in the book, Creepy Romance, with a slew of talented artists. I was a featured designer at the Head+Hand+Hoof Cocktails & Couture fashion show at the internationally renowned art gallery Roq la Rue. I participated in the Edge of the Forest group show, the Bell Jar II show, and the Miniatures show at Ghost Gallery, as well as the Miniatures show at Twilight Gallery. My jewelry has been featured in Nord Magazine and in music videos by Ephrata and Evening Bell.

I created a small exclusive capsule collection for Urban Outfitters for Holiday 2014.

Open the Cellar Door has been featured on, Dirge Magazine, The Stranger, and in Stackedd Magazine.

Open the Cellar Door regularly sells at markets in Seattle. I always create new designs to unveil at each market. Please follow my Instagram page to see where I will be next.

  • Punk Rock Flea Market

    V2, 1525 11th Ave

    Seattle, WA

    Dec 20–22

    That’s right baby! Just in time for holiday madness, the PRFM is coming back to the V2 on Capitol Hill (formerly know as Value Village) on 11th Avenue between Pike and Pine streets. And because we never do anything the same way twice, this particular version of the PRFM is going to take place during the WEEK before Christmas! The market will be OPEN to the public from Tuesday December 20 until Thursday December 22. NO WEEKEND! The market will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM, and on Thursday from 4:00 PM until midnight. The bar will be OPEN and we will have a combination of DJ’s and live music ALL THREE NIGHTS. And this is worth noting – the only way the management agreed to let our sick crew into the building once again is because PRFM will be the LAST THING ever to happen in this building before it gets torn to the muthafuggin’ GROUND! That’s right – PRFM is bringing down this place DOWN. And it's gonna be FUN!

Welcome to Open the Cellar Door. I have lovingly created each piece in this shop and will be posting new items several times a week.

Falsifying shipping documents is illegal here in the US so please don't ask me to add a lesser value than to these documents than what the piece is actually worth.
