My inspiration springs from the textiles which I create clothing and accessories. The colors, textures and fibers help give rise to the shapes and silhouettes that I produce. In addition to traditional flat fabric, I utilize recycled matter from different sources, such as used clothing and vintage housewares. I love the idea of taking materials from 'trash' and making them into 'usable art'. It challenges and motivates me to find another life for old piece. Those items could range from functional products, such as clothing or a purse to a non-functional home décor item. The final designs fuse the new and old into something unique.
