About

Fashion is an intimate art form; we wear it not on walls but on our own bodies. I believe that clothes offer incredible opportunity to celebrate who we are, to tell our personal as well as cultural stories. I am creating wearable art that allows women and men to show on their bodies the glory of God that dwells within.

In late 2018 and early 2019 I made a six-month sojourn through the Arab world--an aesthetic environment that inspired me. I enjoyed learning about the rich tradition of geometric design. Meanwhile, being surrounded by women's fashion that was both vibrant and modest prompted me to consider how my own wardrobe could become a more accurate representation of the person that I am on the inside. This finalized the change of focus that I was already making from fine art to fashion.

I sell hand-painted silk scarves and am preparing to offer silks that are created to be use in a dance setting, also. Your participation in my Patreon community is helping launch my business, covering expenses such as art supplies, website and legal fees, and marketing materials. Meanwhile, you get a sneak peek into what I'm creating and receive personal reflections as I explore my own story and learn to tell other people's stories through fashion design.

Thanks for being here and believing in me! Soli Deo Gloria.
