I am a visual artist and womenswear designer with 15 years experience in the fashion industry. I studied art and fashion at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before launching my career in NYC, designing for contemporary, luxury and lifestyle markets. My work is informed by utilitarian and minimalist values, romanticism, 90's deconstructionism and 80's subculture. I am Gen X and grew up on postpunk, shoegaze, and experimental dance music. I spend my free time with my silken windhound, studying the mysteries of the universe and reading astrology charts for my friends.
