I am inspired by the costumes of tribal cultures and the silhouette of the 1920′s and my designs exude a luxe nouveau bohemian vibe. I consider myself a collage artist in the way I mix fabrics and trims – some new, some vintage, some hand made.
I combine my passion for travel with my art, collecting inspiration and materials and often combining elements from several countries in one piece for a cross cultural statement.
Although the finished wearable art is assembled by hand one at a time in Los Angeles, I use fabrics that are hand women or embellished by mostly women across the globe working at their craft to celebrate their ancient heritage. When you buy and wear one of my designs you are wearing a piece of the heart and soul of all the artists involved and empowering women worldwide.
