  Since my childhood, Iíve been enthralled with the idea of dressing things. I first remember dressing my bedposts with ribbons and fabric scraps from my motherís sewing chest. Then I moved on to the catÖ

My goal has always been to combine art and practicality. Majoring in Industrial Design at Pratt Institute taught me high ideals in the union of art and function. Now Iím pleased to produce a product that is a highly functional garment as well as an original painting. These pieces can be hung on the wall as well and used to enhance an outfit.

A few yeas ago, I became fascinated, as did most of the art loving population, with the brilliance of glass. I searched to find a way to incorporate it in my clothing and came up with the see through effect seen in my scarves, purses and shawls. I later took up welding in order to make the frames for table and hanging lamps I'd been dreaming of making.

When I was a child I spent hours on the beach collecting shells and beach glass and I can always remember my Mom asking "Do we really need to bring all this home?" She'd always get a solemn "yes" in reply. I think of her often as I stoop to collect shells in beaches from Florida to S.F. to Provincetown, Ma. "Yes, Mom. Some day I'm gonna need these." Seems I'm not the only one who loves shells and beach glass.
