As an artist, I'm inspired by the order and chaos of natural processes. I aim to create the kind of untamed yet cohesive beauty found in nature. When paints and dyes meet fabric, I allow the unexpected to inform the original idea, while keeping in mind the human form that the clothing is meant to celebrate. I seek to give a vibratory quality to the hand-painted patterns, imparting energy to the wearer without being overwhelming. I work with a variety of fabrics, using a range of techniques that involve brushing, flinging, splattering, twisting, dripping and dipping. The result is clothing that bears the uniquely expressive mark of the artist's hand while allowing the wearer to shine through. Sometimes people instinctively find what works for them and sometimes we collaborate, discussing proportion, pattern, line, color and fit. The most rewarding part of the process is seeing people who look and feel wonderful in my clothing because a harmonious match has been found.
