For as long as I can remember I’ve always had a strong desire to be creative and make cool stuff.  After my children were born I had the opportunity to stay at home with them.  While staying home with my kids is in many ways more stressful than my job was in the film industry, it does allow me more flexibility. The first thing I ever made was a doll for my daughter.  I find it absolutely thrilling to think up something and then create it on the sewing machine.  I’ve made dolls, cats, dogs, bunnies, whales, birds, bears, monsters, aliens, mermaids, octopuses... you name it!  I’m self-taught and believe I must be channeling the spirit of my late great- grandmother Gi-Gi; an accomplished seamstress.   

As a lifelong art enthusiast, I have many influences including; Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Pamela Zagarenski, and dollmaker Jess Brown.  I'm a lover of color, design, handmade wares and everything midcentury modern.  I go crazy for beautiful fabrics and prints. To my husband’s chagrin, I have assembled quite a collection of fabric.

Whenever possible I use a combination of new and upcycled materials. Every item I create is one-of-a-kind and perfectly imperfect. I believe it’s the quirkiness that makes life charming and you will find this in each of my pieces. Thanks for reading.
