An artist down to my bones, I love nothing more than to create. Whether it is handcrafting one of a kind textiles or creating a pleasing ambiance my surroundings; I see all of life as art. After training in Fine Art and sewing during adolescence, I attended my first two years of university at Pratt Institute. There I studied in the rigorous and highly-selective fashion design program. It encompassed learning the entire process of creating garments from draping and pattern making to utilizing couture sewing techniques. With major focuses also in CAD, fashion illustration, costume & art history, spec sheets, and millinery. I moved to California College of the Arts to study Textiles. I delved as deeply as possible into the art of fibers. I learned advanced weaving, natural & synthetic dyeing, textile conservation, fiber sculpture, experimental fabric manipulation, sustainability, advanced knowledge on every major fiber and screen printing. The technique that captured me the most was botanical dyeing and using natural processes to color, print, and alter fabric. Through this practice, I have gained coveted and precious knowledge. I continue with this self-motivated research daily. I am creating my own textile-driven fashion line and am looking to work somewhere that I can share these skills I have sculpted.
I am the creator of the Earthly fashion and lifesyle line that uses botanical dyes and natural processes to create textiles that I then use in apparel and life products. Every piece is handmade and one of a kind, infused with the essence of medicinal and common plants.
Care-taking for a heard of 16 alpacas. I taught natural dyes to the women of the village and helped with sheering, felting, and product creation.
I shared my skills in a Monday Workshop series held on this house boat in the Deptford creek. Each week was a different subject, I taught dyeing and textile techniques to members of the community.
