My mother first taught me to sew when I was 6 years old and desperate to make ill-fitting clothes for my Barbie doll. Over the years this morphed into a love of, and eventually a degree in, fashion design. By day I work in the apparel industry, and by night I explore the art of undressing, movement, and sensuality through embroidery.
I turned to textile art in 2011, as a way to recharge my creative juices when my previous endeavor turned into more of a business than I was willing to tackle, and stopped being the creative outlet I longed for. Now, I partner with my photographer husband (tsurufoto #545345), to celebrate women: their strengths and sexuality.
All my work is drawn from real women and I am always looking for new sizes and shapes to showcase. I also love collaborations with other artists.
