From Concept to Finish

I’m a one-woman show with my hands on a zillion different projects.

The vast majority of them find completion. The ones that don’t generally didn’t shape up the way I expected or wanted and I take them back to the drawing board. I find it too easy at times as a creative person to go off in several different directions, which is actually fine behind the scenes. Before I can complete one project a new one has popped up in my mind, and sometimes writing it down or completing a sketch isn’t enough. I have to dive in to it, even if it means it gets set aside for another day once I’ve reached a midpoint.

What I need to communicate to the world is different. My concepts and creations have to be cleanly articulated into a nice neat bow. Now this is not a complaint – more like confirmation. I enjoy freedom of artistic expression, that’s my blessing and my gift.



Personal Style

What’s your personal style?

As designs and ideas swirl around in my head and land on this website, I want you to know that I’m sharing my personal style with you. I create what I would wear and what I would love to see on other beautiful people. I feel privileged when you take what I’ve created and make it your own. Thank you.
