About the Artist:
I live and work in upstate New York, near the beautiful Saratoga Race Course, which was, at
least in part, the inspiration for me to explore millinery. I have been making and selling my work
locally and in upscale boutiques across the US since 2013.
With a visual artist Mom, and musician Dad, I’ve been around creativity all my life. I
suppose it’s in my blood….. My university study focus was photo illustration and design, and I
continue to learn new things every single day. I began working with millinery around 2012, and
for me the creative process is ever-evolving, one design builds on the last… one idea leads to
another and I find that I am forever on to something new! I love blocking, sculpting and
stitching a flat piece of raw material into an entirely new entity: a three dimensional work of
wearable art! I hope the joy and excitement of my process shines through for you in every
piece of my finished work.
