About

Filled with rage.
Topped with sprinkles.

What I do:

I make things - mostly (but not exclusively) things to wear. I make them by hand, blending traditional methods like delicate hand embroidery and tambour hook beading with rogue punk hot-glue improvisation to create wearable art for performance and special occasions. My costume work has been seen on stages in Las Vegas, Seattle, Chicago, and cabarets & festivals around the world. 

I also create traditional bridal accessories, restore vintage beaded gowns, embroider crests and patches, or breathe new life into beloved-but-tattered clothing. 

I'm a Wardrobe Mistress, which means I work at live events to help performers with their costumes. 

People sometimes ask me to write, talk, or teach about sartorial matters, because I am a Trained Professional.  

I make art (the kind you don't wear) by stitching together recycled textiles, found objects, and secrets.
