“My pieces are built rather than sewn. My designs are decidedly feminine – I seek to drape the body with the same beauty and grace of the traditional Indian sari I use in my work. I consider each piece a composition, often inspired by a single vintage silk. I then respond to that by adding my own hand-dyed silks and loose wool fibers, using traditional wet felting methods (hand-rolling with soap & water) to build both the fabric and the finished garment simultaneously. Creating couture results without sewing is an ongoing adventure and I strive to create finely finished pieces.”
