My upbringing in Big Sur, California has certainly influenced my designs.
The rugged landscape, ever-changing Pacific ocean, and spring wildflowers are all reflected in my aesthetic.
I combine the unexpected with the classic, enfolding an untamed rawness and ultra-feminine feel into my pieces.
It is a passion that surfaced early in my life.
When I was a little girl I would pick flowers from our garden and flip them upside-down to imagine them as gowns;
I’d twirl them around between my fingertips watching the petals flow and dance through the air...
I began sewing around the age of eight. With a dress form and various lengths of randomly acquired fabric - I’d drape and pin and dream of the possibilities and the extravagant dresses of my future.
Sometimes I hand-sew, other times I use my vintage machines, usually it’s a combination of the two.
“Often times I don’t know what I’m about to create,
It kind of just happens.”
I am available worldwide for consultations. Due to my busy travel schedule, I accept a limited number of clients per year.
