Small batch, artisanal production, my pieces are understated, natural fiber creations. The quiet subtlety of each piece belies unique textures, remarkable fibers & sculptural shapes. I often include Japanese silk-wrapped, stainless steel yarn, and light felting techniques to lend a crumpled memory to my fabrics. Knitting is an increasingly intuitive practice, and I remain intrigued by the Japanese wabi sabi aesthetic of beauty in transience and imperfection. I find peace and joy in that space -- quietly crossing barriers between fashion and craft.
