About the Artist
I have been creating ever since I can remember. As a child, I taught myself to sew at the age of 10. I was fascinated with the concept that you could start with very little and create something beautiful. I loved that there was no limit as long as you could imagine it. I spent most of my college years learning painting and Illustration. In recent years I found my way back to textiles and quickly realized this is where my heart belongs.
When I launched Petals in the Sky, I began with one headdress and kept going. Through many experiments, trials, failures, and my unwavering need to work with my hands, I found my true creative voice.
As a mother and an artist, I have an obligation to lead by example. I prefer to work with antique materials; compelled to use my abilities to make a difference. I’m drawn to fabrics that are rich in history and vibrant in color and pattern. Recycling textiles is my way of giving back to Mother Earth. Every piece that you see is hand made. I create each piece myself which takes days, even weeks to finish. My hope is that every woman I create for finds a perfect, timeless piece. After all, wearable art should be one of a kind just like all the goddesses I know.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
