It all started when...
I HAD MORE CLOTHES THAN I KNEW WHAT TO DO WITH AND NOTHING TO WEAR.
Working my whole adult life in the fashion industry as a Designer/Patternmaker/Technical Designer for iconic fashion brands is where I learned the skills.
The creativity afforded by the deconstruction movement lead me to become an Artwear Artist. My work made its way into art exhibits while I sold my wares at Artisinal Craft Shows, and Museum Gift Shops. I became an expert on recycled fashion and was asked to judge contests and the like.
