Drawing inspiration from many sources, I have built a dedicated clientele. My skill and esteem as a designer and creator of clothing has garnered me collaborations with the Portland Art Museum, Contemporary Craft Museum, and Oregon Ballet Theater. My garments are known for their clean lines, tailored silhouettes, timeless appeal, and impeccable construction.
