Sometimes it feels like a real battle to keep a small business alive these days, especially one in the arts. But I am up for the challenge, because it is my passion.

I am a 'hands-on' DIY type that loves to bring people into the fold of my current projects. More specifically, I love my urban neighborhood and all its unique resources, especially the diversity and small businesses located here. They provide for unique and lively engagement. It also presents unexpected collaborations with other creatives.

My goal is to create a lifestyle of live, work, play, stay and be more sustainable in all my endeavors. Currently, I earn my living as an artist/designer/teacher creating sustainable fashions. That includes create-on-demand designs, as well as up cycled clothing and accessories for wearable art. My designs have a pop art twist that feature historic legends, landmarks and moments. I also mentor youth who have an interest in fashion and design.
