Originally from East Tennessee, I have made my creative home in Houston’s East End since 2014. Formerly a school teacher, I discovered My love for fiber arts while living in Chile during my twenties. There, I worked with artisans and designers to create custom pieces, ultimately returning to the states where I studied fashion design at Boston’s Massachusetts College of Art and Design and knitting at Rhode Island School of Design.
I am committed to disrupting the fashion industry, the world's second greatest polluter, by sustainably producing pieces that are fun to wear. My Work is colorful, whimsical and practical, from knitted installations to wearables.
At the intersection of many of Houston’s vibrant creative communities, I serve as Studio Manager of Canal Street Studios, Communications Director of Houston’s Fashion Group International Chapter and currently have a group installation up at the silos on sawyer as part of the inaugural class of Artist Inc through fresh arts.
