I grew up in a family of tall women. We had difficulty finding fashionable pieces that looked good on us, so it was not surprising all of us sewed. I began knitting and sewing when I was about 10 years old. I always made simple, classic pieces so I could create crazy, funky hats, scarves and handbags. I found I could just change the accessories without having to make a whole new outfit. Love it!
Dramatic colors, striking patterns and alluring textures always made me happy. I love working with linen, wool, silks and cottons. I traveled around the world; and accumulated yards and yards fabrics in playful prints and skeins of yarn in jaunty colors,
Fibers talk to me - whether fabric or yarn. They tell me what they want to be. I love designing pieces that are multi-functional - a handbag that converts to large tote, a reversible tote or a clutch that has two completely different looks.
I believe clothes make the person, but accessories make the clothes.
