Bio / Description: 

If I have to put myself into a box, I suppose I am a fashion/ textile artist. I have been making my own clothes since high school, when my mother bought me my first sewing machine, it wasn't until college that my obsession with textiles really took off. I knit, sew, crochet, even weave and have learned primarily through experimentation.
While in college, I majored in anthropology and minored in linguistics. This has had a deep (if not defining) impact on both how I view textiles and handicrafts, and how I approach my own handiwork. That is to say, I am always aware how what we wear communicates with those around us, of the messages embedded within art; of the rich histories and traditions behind each craft as well as the innovations and new breaths of life being given to those same crafts.
