About Me

I am an artist in my heart, soul and in every cell of my body. I have a passion for making things surrounding me more beautiful than when I first encountered them. I love finding the beauty in a battered object and loving it just the way it is, or partly restoring it. The beauty of these pieces lies in the imperfection, in the story it reflects... This faded look is often reflected in my work: my paintings, as well as my clothing designs. I love finding inspiration in the past. My favourite painters include John Singer Sargent and Cecilia Beaux. I like to refer to my clothing designs as "fabric art", since the focus is often on detail. It's not fashion, but wearable garments of timeless elegance, enhanced by detailed hand finishing. Each design is a one off. My style is instantly recognizable, but no design is ever repeated.

Sweet Caroline

Caroline sparkles in a full-skirted backless dress. The Grecian-inspired pleats in the bodice are held in place by narrow straps of blue tafetta, while her waist is encircled by a vintage diamante band. The collection's signature blue roses at the neckline draws attention to her lovely face
