Her experimentation within her realm of work has led her to play around with wearable art conceived and executed with the same creative force as her sculpture or paintings. Her fashionable designs are lightweight, with no heavy hardware to weight them down, and are made from all natural and authentically vintage materials, including semi-precious stones and antique beads. Every stitch and detailing is hand fashioned, making each bag uniquely one-of-a-kind. Each piece is an original work of art.
