Artist's Statement

I use the traditionally feminine arts of sewing, embroidery, and making do to process the political and the personal. I believe fashion has a role to play in social change and enjoy making pieces with a message that can be worn out in the world as well as displayed.

I also make ready-to-wear and custom one-of-a-kind garments from previously loved clothing and textiles. I love pockets, so most of my garments have at least one, if not more.

Passionate about sustainability, the bulk of my work is made from recycled or second hand materials. I love seeing where the materials take me and hope you do, too.
