All my handmade art to wear is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. There are no raw edges in any of my work. Each seam or edge is either hemmed or serged.  I learned to sew in 4-H, Home Ec classes in high school and many lessons from my mother. 

     To care for your art, hand wash. Line dry and finish with a hot iron.

Dressing up changes your stance.  It is a power tool.  It makes a statement.  

Not so much by wearing the latest fashion but by the way you layer what you have, whether it’s brand new or make-do. With conscious attention to textures and palette you create movement and balance.  You say: I know who I am.  I know what I’m doing.

Growing up I learned to sew and shopping for fabric with my mother was a peak experience. It made perfect sense that I created clothing when I learned to shibori dye fabric.  Instead of buying patterns, I tear and piece the colors that speak to me.

When I see dressed up, in Sunday best or painted blue jeans, in paintings or photographs. I see soft. I see caring and tenderness. I see take a stand. I see power. 

I see I know who I am.  I know what I’m doing.
