Artist Statement

I make one-of-a-kind garments and accessories using refashioned clothes and textiles. I am a big fan of pockets, so most of my clothes have at least one, arm warmers included. I mostly work with wool, cashmere, and silk, though other fibers sneak in, particularly if they’re striped. Each piece features a combination of hand and machine sewing.

These are clothes made from other clothes; they have history! In some, you’ll find evidence of wear. These imperfections do not affect the overall structure of the garment. Instead, they add to the unique character of each piece. A hole becomes an opportunity for embellishment. A flaw becomes a draw. Mass produced clothing is transformed into one-of-a-kind treasures.
