I moved to San Francisco from Washington State after graduating High School and fell in love with the city. I started my journey into sewing in 2006 when I took a few sewing classes at CCSF. The moment I laid hands on my sewing machine and made my first garment I was hooked! When I realized what I could do with needle and thread the possibilities were endless.
I absolutely adore nature and the arts the amount of inspiration I get from what comes from the earth never ceases to amaze me! I use an “opposites attract” approach to choosing fabric by mixing hard and soft and enjoy bringing out the feminine beauty in utilitarian fabrics. I LOVE color the more the better, mixing prints or making my own by hand painting, dying, and embroidery. I make clothing that is unique, wearable, and easy to care for.
Taking care of the environment which provides so much of my inspiration is very important to me. I often use recycled fabric to make my clothing, print all materials on post consumer recycled paper, and make garment tags using the small scraps of left over fabric.
The Lovely Lady who wears one of my garments is a charismatic free spirit who is, sophisticated with a splash of adventure. Everyday is a catwalk and I want every woman to feel sassy and unique in my one of a kind handmade garments!!!
