Your work is delightful. High quality and so creative. Zed loves my new bag. Now he goes out more than he did dangling from my Disney lanyards. 😉. Thanx for everything!

About

Doing what I love.

Since I have been 5, I’ve used sewing as a creative outlet. It’s not just something that I do but it is part of who I am. I’ve never been skilled at drawing, painting or photography, but feel that I have been blessed with a different gift. I can cut things up and sew them together in an unpredictable way. Prior to focusing on my art I spent 13 years as a tailor. Tailoring was a job that I was skilled at, but it was a job. I always felt like there was something missing and I found that with my artful sewing. The use of upcycled materials has inspired me take this gift to another level. The quirky bags that I make are one of a kind and truly a piece of usable art. My love for sewing, fabric and repurposing items in unexpected ways is seen in each and every one of my pieces.

I use an unusual mix of mediums in my pieces. It’s this whimsical use of the ordinary that always intrigues people. The many years of tailoring has insured that the construction of my purses if very professional. The individual attention that is given to each piece is obvious. I truly have a lot of fun doing what I do and this is reflected in the finished product. One of the best parts of doing my art is making people smile and giggle.

When I work with my fabrics and treasures I am reminded of how the unexpected often fits perfectly. At times it’s something small that catches my eye like a piece of trim, buttons or random things pulled from my treasure box. There are so many colors, textures and prints in this world that each inspire me in a different way. While creating I find that I do my best work by dumping things our and being knee deep in fabric. It’s this evolution that captures the true spirit of my work.
