Art Couture

 

        As both a surface designer and a couture designer, I produce one-of-a-kind and limited edition art-to-wear garments as well as two-dimensional wall pieces. My work conveys an ethnic influence in a contemporary, elegant way. Many of my pieces express ancient messages and symbols of protection.
        Using variations of traditional techniques of batik and shibori, often in combination with contemporary resist, discharge and direct dye processes, I develop my designs on luxurious fabrics. Silks of many weights and textures are used, as well as velvets and linens.
        Maintaining a studio in Houston, Texas, I exhibit my work nationally in shows and galleries.
