In my twelfth year, my brave Mother undammed what has turned out to be a lifelong creative river by allowing me to design and execute that design in my bedroom of our new home. And thanks to my Aunt Dolores (possessor of the greatest laugh in the world), I was also making my own school clothes.
Over the years, I've worked in all sorts of fields with fabric as the medium....boats, cars, draperies, awnings, costumes, clothing, leather jackets, etc. Rarely saying 'No' to a project asked of me supplied countless unique experiences. I eventually focused on residential furniture upholstery, and was fortunate enough to have the fantastic artist, Joy Adams, as a client. Together, we designed a chair which proved to be the catapult for a whole new way of thinking about upholstery for me.
These days find me still fashioning pieces from my own inspiration, but many of my customers, upon seeing what options they have, often choose something much more artistic to be done with their furniture than originally planned. After learning about the client.... interests, lifestyle, favorite painting or author.... the goal is to incorporate that information somehow within the piece, thereby creating a connection that might not have been thought to be possible before.
If you have a project in mind, something sentimental that needs a breath of life perhaps, please feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail (please write 'Web site request' in subject line, thank you).
